  • NextGen at Bradley Int'l, Hartford CT
    I recently listened to an FNR broadcast interview with Vicki Cox regarding NextGen at Bradley Internation Airport, Hartford, CT. There were a couple comments made by Ms. Cox that I believe to be inaccurate. For FNR's creditability and the record, please verify my following observations with the FAA's RNAV/RNP Program Office and post any needed corrections to Ms. Cox's statements: 1) The RNAV RNP Runway 15 procedure recently flown by American Airlines is not a Special procedure- it is a public instrument approach procedure. It may be flown by operators qualified for that type of operation like Southwest, Continental, NetJets, and Delta. 2) This type of procedure, an RNAV (RNP) instrument approach procedure, is available to public operators at a number of airports in the US. 3)The procedure was built and paid for by GE's Naverus subsidiary as a qualification project under an FAA authorized and approved "Other Transactional Agreement" (OTA). Only one other company, Boeing-Jeppesen who developed a public procedure at Savannah, GA, was included in this project. Thank you, T.A. Demosthenes
