Paper 16 -- Free Flight Program Update

In close collaboration with the aviation industry, the Federal Aviation Administrations (FAAs) Free Flight program is fielding several advanced Air Traffic Management (ATM) automation systems and evaluating their ability to provide economic benefit to airspace system users. The paper describes the Free Flight Phase 1 (FFP1) program, which ran from 1998 to 2002 and fielded five automation systems. A summary of user benefits resulting from the deployment of these five tools is presented, both qualitatively and quantitatively. Based on the success of FFP1, the FAA is now undertaking a follow-on program, Free Flight Phase 2 (FFP2). This initiative is expanding the deployment of the User Request Evaluation Tool (URET) and Traffic Management Advisor (TMA), is continuing the development of Collaborative Decision Making (CDM), is introducing an aeronautical data link, and is facilitating several new research programs. The paper describes these efforts and presents the current deployment schedules.
