FAA teams with Colorado DOT to advance air safety (12/4/2012)

When we at DOT help improve transportation safety–whether on the road, over the rails, or in the skies–we’re fulfilling the most important aspect of our mission. And when we partner effectively with State DOTs, we’re fulfilling another worthy goal. When we can do both at the same time, that’s even better.

Key Takeaways:

  • When we at DOT help improve transportation safety–whether on the road, over the rails, or in the skies–we’re fulfilling the most important aspect of our mission.
  • It’s an excellent example of state and federal governments working together to improve safety.
  • NextGen initiatives are already helping to deliver more on-time flights, reduce fuel burn, and ensure that the U.S. continues to have the safest aviation system in the world.

“The WAM system in Colorado will track aircraft using a network of small sensors deployed by CDOT in remote areas.”
