FAA Publication Highlights NextGen Primer

The May/June edition of FAA Safety Briefing includes an introduction to the Next Generation Air Transportation System — aka NextGen. While most reports focus on how the upgraded ATC system will benefit airlines' bottom line, the FAA publication zooms in on NextGen's benefits for general aviation pilots. The issue includes articles on Automatic Dependent Surveillance — Broadcast (ADS-B), performance-based navigation, integration of unmanned aircraft into the ATC system and more.
