NextGen and Aircraft Noise Increase
The Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) is a new air traffic control system scheduled to be completed in 2025. It aims to modify air traffic control from a radar-based system with radio communication to a satellite-based system, using GPS-defined waypoints, with data communication. The lauded benefits are savings in fuel, reduced emissions, reduced traffic delays, increase in capacity, and it was claimed, without an increase in noise pollution.
