More time to comment on air-traffic control changes in Columbus, Ohio



The Federal Aviation Administration has extended the public comment period on its plans to implement the satellite-based navigation system commonly called NextGen in Columbus.

The deadline is now September 22nd.

The system, designed to allow aircraft to operate more efficiently, could result in changes to air traffic patterns around Columbus airports.

The Federal Aviation Administration has redesigned the airspace over major metro areas when NextGen has been implemented, and having real-time information instead of the delayed tracking provided by radar will allow aircraft to fly closer together, eliminating the several-mile buffer zone now required.

The new system will be used to direct flight activity at all Columbus-area airports: John Glenn, Rickenbacker, Bolton Field and Ohio State University’s Don Scott Airport.
