NYT NextGen Article
      #339740 - 04/04/12 07:43 AM

Today's paper had an article about how "circling over the airport" may be a
thing of the past (argh...I thought it already was, can't say I've done or
ridden through a stacked approach in many a year....):

It continues to aggravate me that this is supposed to eliminate the need for
more pavement. How reduced vectoring can somehow reduce minimum spacing to
the runway is beyond me.....

I liked the part that said, " for passengers, landing will feel like coming down a slide". Woooohoooooeeeee!

I ride through several holds per year. But not stacked circling and dropping down a tier. Just one or two big racetracks.

And how will NextGen change how airplanes land? :)

So, d'ya think that the Usual Suspects (LockMart, Raytheon, etc.) have a pretty good PR effort cranked up on behalf of NextGen?

Ya, I've been reading a lot about NextGen.

I certainly hope it works as well as advertised. Somehow it seems to me that we will need more runways/airports.

Our trend to a lot of smaller passenger jets and increased frequency of service seems to also be continuing.

Sigh, it takes as much airspace and ATC time to takeoff and land one CRJ with 50 passengers as a B-777 with 300 passengers.

Oh, now I get it. Section takeoffs and landings.

Regards,

Dux still in Tucson

And I'd concur with all you'd said there, 'cept I'd of added "concrete".

Dux -- Works as advertised? Oh, my, an innocent one. I just hope it works.

The way it's being touted, there is no way it can work as advertised.
