The focus of the Future Flight Technologies Branch is the integration of evolutionary and revolutionary technology, along with new technology-based operations, into the FAA’s vision for the Next Generation Air Transportation System.

In addition to NextGen, branches major projects include:

  • Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)
  • Aviation Weather (PDF)
  • Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) policy
  • FAA Wake Turbulence Research Program Office support

The branch offers customers ACCESS for new technologies and ideas. We coordinate efforts, both internally and externally, to ensure smooth, error-free implementation of technologies and their transition into operational status.
