It will regulate the flow of traffic to an airport, allow for ground holding delays, and minimize airbornn delays resulting in significant fuel savings and the smoothing of traffic flow to coincide with airport capacity. This Program Plan supersedes Engineering and Development Program Plan number FAA-ED-11-1, ATC Systems Command Center Automation, dated August 1971. Author
