For this assignment, conduct research and consider airspace capacity challenges currently facing the aviation industry. You will select one specific topic that is leading to an airspace capacity challenge to address in your paper (e.g. unmanned systems operations, an increase in commercial air traffic, etc.).
Airspace Capacity Challenges
Your paper must include:
- The impact of capacity on the current structure of the national airspace
- An evaluation of the FAA’s National Airspace Systems Plan on current air traffic control systems
