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 Chicago Metroplex airspace more efficient and improving access to its airports. The effort focuses on a number of airports, including Aurora Municipal (ARR), DuPage (DPA), Gary/Chicago International (GYY), Chicago Midway International (MDW), General Mitchell International (MKE), Chicago O'Hare International (ORD), Chicago Executive (PWK), Chicago Rockford International (RFD), and Waukegan Regional (UGN).
All results are reported by Fiscal Year (FY), October 1 — September 30.
