Pagination or Media Count:
In 2003, President Bush and Congress took the first critical step towards transformation with the enactment of VISION 100 - Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act - which laid out the mandate for the multi-government agency Next Generation Air Transportation System NGATS or Next Generation System and formally created the Joint Planning and Development Office JPDO to mange the work associated with it. The overreaching vision was for a system that addresses critical safety and economic needs in civil aviation, such as increased capacity, while fully integrating environmental impact, national defense and homeland security improvements - and in a cost effective manner.
