How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The objective of the NAC is to advise the FAA, using consensus-based meeting methodologies, on (1) investment priorities, (2) NextGen priorities and performance analyses reports, (3) trajectory-based operations deployment and planning consistent with the FAA’s NextGen Vision, and (4) ad hoc taskings received directly from the FAA. The NAC will act solely in an advisory capacity and will not exercise program management responsibilities. Decisions directly affecting implementation of transportation policy will remain with the FAA Administrator and the Secretary of Transportation.
How is membership balanced?*Committee membership is determined by the duties of the group and may include representatives from stakeholders in the aviation sector, including manufacturers of aircraft and aircraft systems; airports and air traffic management; dispatchers, pilots, and operators; State, local and tribal governments; and others in the aviation industry.While the actual number of seated NAC members may fluctuate slightly from year to year due to representative organizations and their availability, the imperative is constant: to maintain a broad representation of the aviation community in order for the FAA to align its investments. The NAC will have no more than 30 members. Investments entail complicated business cases and require alignment with operators and manufacturers, as well as representative aviationFederal Advisory Committee (FAC)Membership Balance PlanPlease read the Federal Advisory Committee Membership Balance Plan Guidance prior to completing this formorganizations and key union representatives. Operators and manufacturers require lengthy lead times for avionics upgrades relative to NextGen Implementation plans and this body’s recommendations.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated 3 meeting annually
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The purpose of NAC is to provide advice on agency-level issues facing the aviation community in implementing the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) to modernize the aviation system. The FAA has a compelling need to establish NAC in the public’s interest as an ongoing venue and process to enable interested stakeholders to advise FAA on issues related to near- and mid-term implementation of NextGen.
