The New England GPS Alternate Route Study analyzes the overall impact on New England Region's airspace that would occur if certain air routes were modified from the current structure to a more direct routing. We used the metrics of maximum instantaneous aircraft count for sectors, distance flown, flight time, and potential conflicts for baseline and GPS scenarios. We have found that with more direct routing, the average instantaneous aircraft count increased in only three Center sectors, and in only two terminal sectors; the average distance flown decreased five nautical miles in the GPS scenario; the average flight time decreased by 1 minute in the GPS scenario; and the numberr of potential conflicts increased in only three center sectors, and in only four terminal sectors.
