NextGen in Phoenix: ‘And the Beat Goes On’

Readers can judge for themselves, just how unwilling FAA is to fix the mess they made when they flipped the switch on NextGen departure procedures, nearly eight months ago, on September 18th.

Take a little time and read this pair of letters, presented as PDF files in two scrollable windows. The first is FAA’s 4/14/2015 letter to leaders of Phoenix, signed by FAA’s Regional Administrator Glen Martin. The second is the City’s 4/24/2015 response letter, responding to Mr. Martin, and also summarizing the difficult history of this mess, signed by City Manager Ed Zuercher.
