The Next Generation Air Transportation System, or NextGen, is the FAA-led modernization of America's air transportation system to make flying even safer, more efficient, and predictable.
This is NextGen
NextGen is not one technology, product, or goal. The NextGen portfolio encompasses the planning and implementation of innovative new technologies and airspace procedures after thorough safety testing. Through research, innovation, and collaboration, NextGen sets standards around the world to further establish the FAA's global leadership in aviation.
How NextGen Works
As the steward of America's airspace, the FAA is committed to ensuring that we have the safest, most efficient airspace system possible and for future generations of air travelers to come.
Commitments, Implementation, and Plan
The FAA publishes information on NextGen programs and portfolios reshaping the NAS and collaborates with the aviation community on delivering tangible implementation benefits that align the agency's and aviation community's priorities.
NextGen Performance Reporting captures the quantitative benefits of implemented capabilities focused on safety, throughput, and flight efficiency measures.
