While I was largely unaware of the NextGen program before visiting this blog, it seems quite useful and beneficial. Air travel is not going away; bringing it in line with the twenty-first century is arguably essential for domestic airports and airlines. Although more people may be affected by low-level air traffic, I do not see a viable alternative as long as air travel remains a primary mode of transportation. Saving money, fuel, and time benefits everyone. Not seeking further efficiency for fear of disturbing a relatively small number of nearby citizens seems rather irresponsible to the economy, the environment, and the many millions of travelers flying each year.
