Is air travel going to be easier and more efficient?
By accident I stumbled upon the following ad/video for the NextGen gate to gate system that is supposed to make air travel more efficient. Basically, integrated information technology should streamline communication and reduce overhead that arose from decentralized management. As a result planes should e.g., fly closer together “without any loss of safety”… But have a look yourself. If you are interested you will find more details on the FAA NextGen pages.
