  • Abstract:
    The next generation air transportation system (NextGen) includes the

    policies, procedures, and equipment that will allow satellite-based navigation in the

    national airspace system. However, this system’s ability to meet forecasted traffic

    volumes also depends on aircraft being equipped to take advantage of NextGen

    capabilities. Purchase incentives could encourage carriers to equip their aircraft as soon

    as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) makes the procedures for operating in a

    NextGen environment available. Traditionally, FAA mandates the equipage of aircraft

    and provides several years for operators to comply. For a variety of reasons, some

    operators do not equip until the deadline for equipping is near. FAA has proposed an

    option to incentivize early equipage. It is referred to as “best-equipped, best-served.”

    Under this option, FAA would offer those aircraft operators who choose to equip their

    aircraft as soon as possible with various operational benefits, such as preferred airspace,

    routings, or runway access.
