Background

The FAA has committed to implementing performance-based airspace operations. Given this commitment, there are significant issues with industry dynamics; new technologies; new aircraft types/capabilities and configurations and current operations; airspace use; airports; infrastructure; economics; and the environment. These complex issues mandate a comprehensive review and possible revision of existing regulatory criteria and guidance materials. Where existing criteria and guidance is inadequate or nonexistent, there will be the requirement to develop and implement new regulatory criteria and the guidance material needed by all stakeholders. The PARC provides a forum for the U.S. aviation community to discuss, prioritize, and resolve issues, provide direction for U.S. flight operations criteria, and produce U.S. consensus positions for global harmonization. The FAA Administrator issued the PARC charter on February 19, 2004. The PARC charter expires February 19, 2006, unless sooner terminated or extended by the Administrator.
