Air traffic controllers are planning to squeeze more aircraft into the same skies surrounding some of the nation's busiest airports. Reduced spacing saves fuel and time, and increases capacity, all while reducing aircraft emissions. Known as “wake turbulence recategorization,” or “Wake RECAT,” the program enables controllers to space aircraft by type and performance, considering wingspan and approach speed, rather than just takeoff weight. "More than likely, as a pilot you will never know this change in separation is being applied to your aircraft," said Bob Lamond, NBAA's director of air traffic services and infrastructure. "NBAA supports the RECAT effort and believes it will pay benefits to business aviation." Learn more.
