The FAA currently makes frequent use of Flow Constrained Areas (FCAs) to thin traffic through some region of airspace by assigning departure delay to flights filed to fly through that airspace. An important potential future use of such FCAs is their integrated application within a Collaborative Trajectory Options Program (CTOP) Traffic Management Initiative (TMI). This paper reports the results of cognitive walkthroughs completed with ten recently retired traffic managers. These walkthroughs were designed to evaluate information and information display requirements, as well as other decision support requirements, for software to enable the creation of FCAs for a CTOP TMI
