See and Avoid Web Portal The Air National Guard maintains the SeeandAvoid . org web portal offering a centralized , credible website that provides civilian and military pilots with reciprocal information and education on airspace , visual identification , aircraft performance , and mutual hazards to safe flight ; with the ultimate goal of eliminating midair collisions and reducing the close calls .
Originally created by the Air National Guard Aviation Safety Division , this portal is funded by the Defense Safety Oversight Council and includes all military services . The goal is to eliminate midair collisions and reduce close calls through continuous flight safety and proper flight planning . By promoting information exchange between civilian pilots and the military flight safety community , the site provides a one‐stop shop allowing users to find and link all existing military Mid‐Air Collision Avoidance ( MACA ) programs in a single location .
This portal targets both general aviation pilots and military safety officers at all military bases and integrates and links with related sites such as FAA Special Use Airspace , Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association ’ s Air Safety Foundation , and the new FAA MADE ( Military Airspace Data Entry ) program .
Next Generation Air Transportation System The Next Generation Air Transportation System ( NextGen ) is a multi‐faceted federal initiative to combine the capabilities of satellite‐based and other emerging technologies with the need to accommodate increasing levels of air traffic , especially aircraft operating in constrained airspace and at congested airports . The NextGen program seeks to implement safer and more efficient departure , en route , and arrival procedures to improve the overall capacity of the nation ’ s airport / airspace system . Benefits indicated by the implementation of NextGen technology and procedures include :
Direct Flight Operations . Pilots will have the ability and authority to select specific flight paths , rather than being required to follow existing airways defined by ground based navigational aids . To do this safely , each aircraft will

Collaborative Air Traffic Management . Imbalance demand on existing airport and airspace capacit stronger collaborative efforts among air traffic m operators . Increases in the scope , volume and d provided by NextGen will serve to improve the q decision‐making processes .
