NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC)

The NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC), established September 23, 2010, is a Federal advisory committee formed to provide advice on policy-level issues facing the aviation community in implementing NextGen (modernizing the aviation system). The NAC is tackling issues that are broader than air traffic management, including safety, airports, the environment and global harmonization.

The goal of the NAC is to foster industry collaboration in an open and transparent manner. It includes a cross section of executives from the airlines, airports, general aviation, pilots, air traffic controllers, the Department of Defense, environmental interests, international interests and providers of air traffic control technology – all committed to ensuring a successful transition to NextGen. This public-private partnership venue is addressing the critical policies and priorities for NextGen implementation, to ensure a positive business case for all who must invest in NextGen, and to provide a venue for tracking progress and sustaining joint commitments.

In response to tasks from the FAA, the NextGen Advisory Committee forges consensus recommendations on some of the toughest implementation-related issues facing the community as it works to implement NextGen. In some cases, these recommendations are bundled into reports that are made available to the public. Please contact for more information.
