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 Detroit Metroplex airspace more efficient and improving access to its airports. The effort focuses on a number of airports, including Coleman A. Young Municipal (DET), Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County (DTW), Oakland County International (PTK), and Willow Run (YIP).
All results are reported by Fiscal Year (FY), October 1 — September 30.
