1 NY/NJ/PHL Metropolitan Area Airspace Redesign Implementation Update Presentation to: Eastern Region Aviation Weather Conference By: Don Castonguay Air traffic Supervisor New York Center & Airspace Redesign Team Peter Nelson Senior Management Analyst Air traffic Operations Date: November 18, 2008 Federal Aviation Administration

2 Federal Aviation Administration 2 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, ’s Public Meetings Kick off for NY/NJ/PHL Airspace Redesign Public Meetings DEIS Public Continues to Meet ROD Stage 2: Internal Changes Stage 4: Full Integration Stage 3: Boundary Adjustments Stage 1: RNAV, Diverging Headings Public Meetings Mitigation Analysis Alternative Development and Analysis Traffic Growth, Rising Delays, Impetus for Change

3 Federal Aviation Administration 3 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Routinely, the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas airports are among the top 10 delayed Lack of alternate routes closes off airspace in cases of severe weather Multiple facilities fragment arrival and departure corridors Complexity and congestion continue to be issues even with post-September 11 downturn Why We Need to Redesign Airspace

4 Federal Aviation Administration 4 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Implementation Overview Implementation Plan began developed immediately following the signing of Record of Decision (September 5, 2007). Initial changes to airspace were implemented on December 19, 2007 Implementation approach was segregated into four stages in the ROD Each stage will take from 12 to 18 months and stages will overlap

5 Federal Aviation Administration 5 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 ROMA (…or Route Optimization and Mitigation Analysis) Considers all headings within an identified range Evaluates noise impact for every possible combination of headings Identifies exact headings for minimal impact EWR

6 Federal Aviation Administration 6 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Motivation for Westgate Expansion KEY ISSUES WITH CURRENT WESTGATE ELIOT overload – currently serves 3 airways and BRNAN PARKE complexity – climbing and descending aircraft BIGGY complexity – climbing and descending aircraft RBV crossing traffic – increased volume from JFK IMPACTS Westgate a “chokepoint” during peak demand Passback of Miles-in-trail (MIT) restrictions to NY metro airports Potential adverse impact on PCT arrivals 6 J80 J6 J48 J75 J60 J64 To BWI/DCA To IAD ZNY55 ZNY39 ZNY10 ZNY73 ZNY09 ELIOT PARKE LANNA BIGGY

7 Federal Aviation Administration 7 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Shift J60/J64 traffic to the west Shift J6 traffic to the west Decrease Traffic Load on ELIOT Split PARKE Departures from IAD Arrivals Split BIGGY Departures from BWI/DCA Arrivals Shift IAD arrivals between PARKE and ELIOT Shift DCA/BWI arrivals between BIGGY and LANNA ADDITIONAL WESTGATE FIXES INTRODUCE TERMINAL SEPARATIONS Realign RBV departure route(s) Reduce Impact of Crossing Traffic from RBV “Wrap” JFK departures over Westgate fixes REROUTE / REALIGN RBV DEPARTURES Westgate Expansion

8 Federal Aviation Administration 8 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Add One New Departure Fix Fix location Sector boundary & traffic impacts Use of new fix Next Steps Expand Use of Terminal Separation Rules “Wrap” JFK Departures Addition of Second New Departure Fix Terminal HITL evaluation Feasibility analysis Design refinement Realign RBV Transition Routes Route design Sector boundary TO-DO LIST N90 / ZNY Resectorization N90 / ZNY resectorization Separation standards in integrated airspace Route design Sector boundary redesign Runway use

9 Federal Aviation Administration 9 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Key Elements of Stage 2 (4/1/2008 – 10/1/2009) Relocate and Expand West Airways Redesign NYNJPHL West Corridor ZNY HITL – June 2008; N90 HITL Oct 2008; Combined HITL Feb 2009 Apply Altitude Restriction on JFK En Route Arrivals for High and Low Capacities JFK Improvements Reroute ISP Arrivals over LENDY Reroute JFK Europe Arrivals via ROBER Reroute Traffic to New West Airways Reroute Traffic to Existing West Airways Reconfigure PHL Reconfigure and Reroute Departures Reroute Arrival Streams Additional Dispersal Headings for RWY 09 and RWY 27

10 Federal Aviation Administration 10 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 West Departure Area: Current boundary dissolves and airspace expands to combine parts of ZNY and N90 Liberty PHL Terminal Expansion: PHL terminal absorbs parts of ZDC and ZNY to accommodate new arrival and departure routes ZBW Boundary Modification: ZBW boundary shifts to support Stage 3 airspace realignment to the Northgate Stage 2: Minor Airspace Realignment

11 Federal Aviation Administration 11 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Key Elements of Stage 3 (5/11/2010 – 11/9/2011) Relocate and Expand North Airways Redesign NYNJPHL North Corridor (ZNY, N90) Reroute Northbound PCT Departure Routes Redistribute Some ZNY Northgate Departures to ZNY Westgate Redistribute Traffic on New North Routes Facilitating Stage 4 Elements Apply Altitude Restriction on LGA to Separate NY and PHL Traffic Provide Arrival Coordination for Traffic Flow Management Apply Terminal Separation Rules (allowing less stacking and MIT) Additional MXE Departure Fix Arrival Shift LGA and EWR Facility Boundary Adjustments at ZNY, ZBW, ZDC, N90 Implement 3rd Dispersal Heading at EWR

12 Federal Aviation Administration 12 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 South Arrival/Departure Area: Combines parts of ZDC and N90 into PHL TRACON to support full integration of Stage 4 North Departure Area: Combines parts of ZNY and N90 to support expanded Northgate departures East Departure Area: Combines parts of ZBW and N90 to support full integration of Stage 4 North Arrival Area: Combines parts of ZBW, ZNY and N90 to support shift in North arrivals in Stage 4 Stage 3: Major Airspace Realignment

13 Federal Aviation Administration 13 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Key Elements of Stage 4 (3/10/2011 – 9/7/2012) Relocate and Expand South Airways Redistribute Traffic on New South Routes Redesign NYNJPHL South Corridor Apply Traffic Flow Management Rules for South Airway Relocate and Expand East Airways Redesign NYNJPHL East Corridor Redistribute Traffic on New East Routes East Airway Apply Traffic Flow Management Rules Align TEB and MMU Departure Gates feeding EWR Departures Change Altitude Restrictions Create Continuous Decent Approach Procedures All other Locations Apply Traffic Flow Management Rules

14 Federal Aviation Administration 14 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Full Airspace Integration: Stage 4 realizes the full integration of airspace – N90 with parts of ZNY, ZDC, and ZBW Stage 4: Full Airspace Integration

15 Federal Aviation Administration 15 NY/NJ/PHL Metro Redesign November 18, 2008 Next Steps Continue to address and resolve legal and political challenges Written Reevaluation with respect to new Information Respond to GAO Recommendations – Report due July 31, 2008 Pending litigation – Extension Granted for Briefing Schedule Continue safety assessment of all changes Facilitate an improved collaborative relationship with all stakeholders Develop Airspace design activities with adjacent facilities that enhance the benefits of integration
