In 2007 the airline industry had one of the worst performance records in aviation history. New York area airports have more delays than any airport in the country. Approximately 75% of all delays in the National Airspace System occur because of delays in the NY Metropolitan Area airspace. Delays have a direct impact on the aviation industry and the ability to transport passengers and goods in a timely and cost-effective manner. We exist to fix that.
