Abstract:

Since the summer of 1982, the Federal Aviation Administration FAA has been hosting task group working sessions of the National Airspace Review NAR. The NAR is a cooperative venture by the aviation industry and government. The NAR is comprehensively reviewing current air traffic control procedures, flight regulations, and airpsace for the purpose of validating the current system or identifying near-term changes which will promote greater efficiency. As a component of the National Airspace System Plan, the NAR will provide the operational framework for moving into the next generation National Airspace System. In the area of procedures, task groups have covered terminal services, weather programs, traffic flow management, helicopter operations, separation standards and the national Flight Data System. In the regulations area, task groups have covered regulated terminal airspace areas, and some aspects of airways and routes establishment and revocation. In the area of airspace task groups have covered terminal and en route airspace configuration, routes, United StatesCanadaMexico interface, charts, Air Route Traffic Control Center infrastructure, and airspace reclassification. Study areas remaining to be reviewed are FAA Handbooks, several regulatory areas, and international airspace. Working sessions covering these areas will extend to the fall of 1984.
