Abstract : The Federal Aviation Agency has completed its survey of three proposed sites for a new jetport to serve the New York City metropolitan area. The sites are in Orange and Suffolk Counties, New York, and in Burlington County, New Jersey. Each is between one hour and thirty minutes and two hours traveltime from mid-Manhattan using currently existing railroad or highway facilities. The study concluded that any of the proposed jetport sites would create air traffic problems of some degree since their arrival and departure paths would cross routes required to serve other metropolitan airports or existing enroute airways. In addition, airspace requirements for handling traffic flow at any of the sites would necessitate changes to the boundaries of established warning and restricted areas as well as those of FAA air route traffic control centers and other control facilities.
