The Next Generation Air Traffic System’s (NextGen) goal is to increase capacity three-fold (JPDO, 2007). Given that approximately 70 percent of system delays can be attributed to weather, planning is focused on reducing weather-related delays by at least fifty percent (Leader, 2007). NextGen plans to integrate information from multiple sources, providing the same information to pilots, controllers, and dispatchers. However, different stakeholders may require different information at different times. This research identifies information needed by dispatchers and commercial pilots for pre-flight and in-flight planning and decision-making.
