The MASE project would implement new en route and terminal airspace procedures to increase efficiency and enhance safety of aircraft movements in the airspace overlying and beyond the Cleveland and Detroit Metropolitan areas. The MASE airspace redesign would integrate high-altitude and en route airspace changes with low-altitude terminal airspace changes to provide for a more seamless operation between the two airspace areas. In addition, MASE would allow for more efficient utilization of the runway configurations at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County and Cleveland Hopkins International airports. Overall, MASE would maintain safety while reducing delays, accommodating growth, and incorporating new technology.
