of Florida’s major airports.
The announcement was made
at JetBlue University, the carrier’s
training center, where simulators
demonstrated examples of NextGen
procedures and routes. CEO and
president of JetBlue Airways
Dave Barger joined Huerta for the
announcement. Barger is chair of the
NextGen Advisory Committee, an
industry group that works with FAA
as part of NextGen.
“The NextGen Metroplex initiative
demonstrates the progress that
can be made when the public and
private sectors collaborate to deliver
benefits for the flying public, the
aviation community and the national
economy,” said Huerta. “We’re
excited about the improvements
NextGen is bringing to Florida. The
end result for travelers will be fewer

As part of FAA’s NextGen
modernization program, the
Metroplex initiative will improve

or planned in numerous metropolitan
areas across the country and will
help airlines improve on-time
performance and reduce emissions
generated by aircraft, FAA said.
The Metroplex initiative is based
on satellite navigation, which FAA
calls Performance-Based Navigation
(PBN), also a key component of
NextGen. PBN enables pilots to
fly aircraft using satellite coverage
or by utilizing the on-board flight
PBN allows shorter, more direct
routes that reduce flight time and
fuel consumption, and result in fewer
