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 Denver Metroplex airspace more efficient and improving access to its airports. The effort focuses on a number of airports, including Centennial (APA), Rocky Mountain Metropolitan (BJC), and Denver International (DEN).

All results are reported by Fiscal Year (FY), October 1 — September 30.
