NY/NJ/PHL Metropolitan Area Airspace Redesign

Project and Implementation Update

Presentation to: Congressional Staffers

Record of decision issued september 5 2007
Record of Decision Issued – September 5, 2007

  • The Selected Project for this study is the Integrated Airspace Alternative with the Integrated Control Complex (ICC) with mitigation.

  • The study took over 9 years culminating in a Record of Decision (ROD)

  • Procedural adaptations for noise abatement (mitigation measures) was also implemented

  • Draft Environmental Impact Statement DEIS was published in December 2005

  • Comments were taken on the DEIS and some of those comments were used in developing the noise mitigation measures

  • In April of 2007 the FAA identified its Preferred Alternative and provided analysis of the mitigation measures

  • Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) was published on August 3, 2007

Implementation Overview

  • Planning has already started

  • Initial changes were implemented on December 19, 2007

  • Expected timeframe for completion five years

  • Implementation approach was broken into four stages in the ROD:

Implementation a work in progress
Implementation - A Work in Progress

  • Beyond the implementation of dispersal headings at Philadelphia and Newark, which were implemented on December 19, 2007, we do not anticipate any project elements to be implemented that will create additional noise impacts prior to the Fall of 2008.

  • The use of dispersal headings will be refined and adjusted to meet traffic demands while maintaining the integrity of the environmental process.

  • We are currently in a detailed planning process of further implementation steps.

Stage 2
Stage 2

  • Expanding the west gate for NY departures

    • Opening the west gate for JFK departures

    • Allowing stacked departures at the departure fixes

  • Expanding the use of terminal separation rules

  • Providing flexible use of the arrival airways

  • PHL

    • Establishing a new arrival route into PHL

    • Third westbound departure fix for PHL

January 7, 2008


Increased number of jet routes reduces delay
Increased Number of Jet Routes Reduces Delay

  • Current System:

  • Few jet routes for departures

  • Access is limited

  • Competition for resources means increased delay

  • Selected Project:

  • Increased number of jet routes

  • Increased number of access points

  • Less competition for departures means decreased delay

January 7, 2008


Jfk access to westgate decreases complexity
JFK Access to Westgate Decreases Complexity

Selected Project:

Current System:

  • JFK traffic crosses through departures from LGA, EWR, TEB, etc.

  • Long ground delays necessary to maintain safe and orderly flow of traffic

  • Stacked flows are more efficient and less complex

Westgate stage 2 airspace redesign initiatives
Westgate Stage 2 Airspace Redesign Initiatives

  • Support potential throughput increase by

  • Dual J80s

  • ZNY sector vertical splits

  • Reroute from Northgate

Increase ELIOT’s potential throughput capacity

2nd ELIOT

for J60/J64

departures

Reduce enroute MIT

Create new fix

west of ELIOT

and/or

Increase PARKE’s potential throughput capacity

Separate route

for IAD arrivals

Reduce NY metro departure delay

Route offset for

IAD arrivals

Reduce vectoring in ZNY39

Reduce MIT at Westgate

Eliminate RBV crossing to J60/J64

JFK access

to ELIOT

Apply Terminal

separation rules

up to FL230

Create new fix east of BIGGY

Increase BIGGY’s potential throughput capacity

Separate route for

CDA/BWI arrivals

Allow easy offload from WHITE

Realign Westgate

fixes

Stage 3 and stage 4
Stage 3 and Stage 4

Stage 3

  • Adding a third airway to the north gate

    Stage 4

  • Creating a new jet airway for departures to the west

  • Enabling dependent instrument arrivals to the parallel runways at EWR and the required shift of the arrival streams into the NY/NJ area

  • Creating a south gate for departures out of the NY/NJ area

Increased number of jet routes reduces delay1
Increased Number of Jet Routes Reduces Delay

  • Current System:

  • Few jet routes for departures

  • Access is limited

  • Competition for resources means increased delay

  • Selected Project:

  • Increased number of jet routes

  • Increased number of access points

  • Less competition for departures means decreased delay

Stage 2

Example of delay savings with new usage of runways

Dependent IFR approaches

EWR

Dual Arrivals

Example of Delay Savings with New Usage of Runways

  • Current System:

  • Conflicting flows restrict use of runways

  • Inefficient use of runways = increased delay

  • Selected Project:

  • Dual arrivals to EWR 04/22

  • Increased use of EWR 11

  • Efficient use = reduced delay

Next steps
Next Steps

  • Continue to address and resolve legal and political challenges

  • Develop full implementation team

  • Continue full RNAV implementation

  • Implement terminal separation standards in former EnRoute airspace sectors

  • Continue safety assessment of all changes

  • Develop Airspace design activities with adjacent facilities

    that enhance the benefits of integration
