  FAA’s Integrated Airspace/NYICC -- NY/NJ/PHL Redesign Concept --
See below the Federal Aviation Administrations (FAA’s) Integrated Airspace/New York Integrated Control Complex (NYICC) alternative for the NY/NJ/PHL Airspace Redesign Project. The concept will increase departure patterns for the metro area airports, consolidate arrival patterns, and introduce new holding patterns in the metropolitan area. The New Jersey Coalition Against Aircraft Noise (NJCAAN) believes that the Integrated Airspace/NYICC concept is the FAA’s preferred alternative for the project.



The first graphic (above) represents the current departure and preliminary Integrated Airspace/NYICC departure patterns. This graphic is self explanatory—more concentrated departure patterns for the Metro area airports and no ocean routing departure patterns for Newark Airport.



The graphic above is the Integrated Airspace/NYICC arrival configuration. (Note: the FAA identified the Integrated Airspace/NYICC as the same concept in its 2003 aviation capacity enhancement (ACE) report.) This graphic warrants explanation. These lines in red represent the FAA’s preliminary proposed arrival patterns for the Integrated Airspace/NYICC alternative. The concept consolidates arrivals patterns for all airports over four distinct backbone patterns. The first pattern begins in Delaware and comes up western New Jersey into Newark Airport and the Metro area and appears to follow the Yardley fix. The second pattern comes from in over northern New Jersey. The other two patterns come in over Long Island and Westchester County, NY. Finally, somewhere in these arrival configurations, the FAA intends to move holding patterns closer into the metropolitan area.

The FAA had previously introduced the departure patterns to the public in May 2003 in a quarterly update to Congress but has yet to formally introduce the arrival patterns. NJCAAN unearthed the arrival patterns (Integrated Arrival Flows) from an FAA aviation industry presentation. In the meantime, the agency has provided extensive disclosure on the project to the aviation industry and has allowed the industry to contribute in the development of the redesign, which NJCAAN believes undermines public interests.
