The FAA is redesigning airspace and addressing airspace inefficiencies, introducing new Performance Based Navigation (PBN) procedures and making use of Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) to make the Seattle Metroplex airspace more efficient and improving access to its airports. The effort focuses on a number of airports, including Boeing Field/King County International (BFI), Snohomish County (Paine Field) (PAE), Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA), and Tacoma Narrows (TIW).
All results are reported by Fiscal Year (FY), October 1 — September 30.
