ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the findings of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the challenges faced by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the implementation of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). The FAA must deliver capabilities that provide aircraft operators with a return on their investments in NextGen avionics. GAO's suggestions address delays in NextGen's acquisitions, improve FAA's processes, and focus on accountability and performance.
