Travelers must be pre-approved for the Global Entry program. While Global Entry's goal is to speed travelers through the process, members may be selected for further examination when entering the United States. New Downtown Washington, D.C.

Fact Sheet – Next Generation Air Transportation System 2006 Progress Report The FAA is completely transforming air traffic control from a ground-based system of radars to a satellite-based system through the Next Generation (NextGen) Air Transportation System Integrated National Plan. NextGen is critically important because the current system will not be able to handle traffic that is expected to increase to one billion passengers by 2015 and double current levels by 2025. Planning and implementing NextGen is being carried out by a unique public/private partnership called the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO). The JPDO is made up of representatives from the Departments of Transportation, Defense, Homeland Security, Commerce, the FAA, NASA and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. It is also supported, through the JPDO, by a wide range of aviation experts from across the private sector. This month the JPDO has delivered its annual report to Congress on progress in making the transition to NextGen. Planning Technology Cost
