Abstract:

The document Volume I of five volumes is a proposed program plan for improvements in air traffic control and airports required as part of the FAAs Quiet Short-Haul Air Transportation System QSATS program. In accordance with guidance from the FAA QSATS Office, the document is in the format of a chapter for a National Plan to Improve Short-Haul Air Transportation. The document summarizes the conclusions and recommendations of several scenarios and case studies which were used to examine the ATCAirport implications associated with various concepts as to how the improved short-haul air transportation service is most likely to evolve. The ATCAirport Program Poan is based on the findings resulting from those scenarios on assumptions as to the types of airports and aircraft most likely to be involved and on assumptions as to the nature of the future ATC capabilities expected from the FAA ATC program as currently defined. Supporting documentation for the ATC part of Volume I is presented in Volumes II, III, and IV which describe the scenarios and case studies made in the areas of Airport ATC, Terminal Area ATC, and En Route ATC respectively.
