The National Airspace System NAS is a complex, sophisticated collection of hardware, software, and trained personnel. Over many decades, this system has matured to the point where it can handle, safely and reasonably efficiently, many millions of flights on an annual basis. Nonetheless, the FAA and Industry must find ways to improve NAS safety and efficiency while meeting the constantly increasing demand for capacity. The Safe Flight 21 program a GovernmentIndustry partnership dedicated to developing, demonstrating, and evaluating various applications that could provide operational enhancements to the NAS represents a major component of this effort. In order to minimize the inherent tension between the need to examine proposed NAS changes thoroughly and the need to implement NAS changes expeditiously, the Safe Flight 21 program has initiated the development of application Checklists. The purpose of each Checklist is to identify all the level 2 tasks required to develop and implement an application in the NAS, and to 1 Plan and track program activities, schedules, and responsibilities for the application 2 Address stakeholder resource needs and build agreements between stakeholdersactivities 3 Educate all involved parties and manage expectations and 4 Achieve buy-in from stakeholders and participants FAA, Industry, and other Federal agencies.
