National Playbook

A traffic management tool developed to give the ATCSCC, other FAA facilities, and system users a common product for various route scenarios. The National Playbook contains the most common scenarios that occur during each thunderstorm season and each includes the resource or flow impacted, facilities included, and specific routes for each facility involved. Each scenario in the National Playbook includes a graphical presentation and has been validated by the individual facilities involved in that scenario. National Playbook routes are only used after collaboration and coordination between the ATCSCC Severe Weather Unit and the Traffic Management Unit(s) of affected air traffic facilities.

NEW TOTAL, MAXIMUM, AVERAGE DELAYS:

Newflight

Status assigned to the first message that causes a flight record to be created in the ETMS Flight Database (FDB).

Non-Exempt Flight: (2 types)

Previously Controlled: Have second priority behind exempt flights during RBS++. These flights are ordered by their ASLOT.
Non-previously Controlled: Have third priority during RBS++. These flights are ordered by IGTA, but may have to sort by ASLOT.

Open_Slot:

An open slot is created when a flight is cancelled or delayed, so all open slots have one and only one associated flight. This association never changes. An open slot due to delay (at least one of the delay flags is set in the flight record) is created if its associated flight’s ETA is later than where the open slot will be displayed on the timeline, which is at either (1) Wheel_Arrival_Time if the flight doesn’t have a slot, or (2) its slot time if the flight has a slot.

OVERRIDE AFP:

Indicates this is an Override AFP, which assumes control of all flights in the AFP even if they are controlled by other AFPs. Only listed when YES, omitted when NO.

Pacing Airport

Due to their location and service as a hub to more than one airline, some airports (termed "pacing airports") can have a detrimental impact throughout the NAS when their operations are impacted by weather or non-weather events. The FAA has determined that the following are pacing airports: New York LaGuardia (LGA), Newark International (EWR), Chicago O'Hare International (ORD), San Francisco International (SFO), Boston Logan International (BOS), Philadelphia International (PHL), New York John F. Kennedy International (JFK), and Atlanta Hartsfield International (ATL).

Planned Flight

Any flight that is in the OAG schedule, or that is created by a CDM FC or FM message received from an airline, or that is created by an FZ message received from the NAS Host.

Plus_Time:

Value entered by the FSM user when implementing a GDP. The Plus_Time determines the buffer past the data time in which flights will not be delayed. This is to insure that flights that are already boarding are not issued a delay

Pop-up

A flight involved in a GDP that was not scheduled prior to the start of the program. Considered undesirable excess demand, pop-up flights are not handled the same as scheduled flights in a GDP.

Power Run

A Tab in the GDT Setup component which allows you to model various scenarios to help evaluate what parameters are most favorable.

Purge

The cancellation of a TMI. The purge process removes from ETMS all TMIs currently in place for a specific element.

REASON: reason / explanation text

An advisory field that indicates the reason and explanation for the program as entered by the ATCSCC specialist. The reason can be “weather”, “volume”, “runway”, “equipment”, or “other”. The explanation is free text.

REMARKS: remarks text

An advisory field used to list free text remarks as entered by the ATCSCC specialist.

Revised Program

The revision of an AFP or GDP that is already in place. This revision can be simply to change the rate, scope, or a modification in start / end times which extend or reduce the time frame of the program. Revisions replace existing slots with new slots during the time frame of the revision.

Schedule Accuracy

The sum of the absolute values of the difference of (actual departure time estimated departure time) for each flight divided by the number of valid flights.

schedule database

Database of airline schedule information based on information received from the Official Airline Guide (OAG). The schedule database is updated with new OAG data every two weeks.

Scheduled

Status assigned to a flight that has been created from OAG data, but is not controlled, filed, active, cancelled, or completed.

Scheduled Flight

Any flight contained in the OAG schedule, as indicated by presence of an FS message in the flight's message history.

Sector

A volume of air space corresponding to one air traffic control area of responsibility. There are many sectors within an ARTCC. Generally, one team of air traffic controllers is responsible for each sector.

Slot

Arrival slots are created by FSM for airports in a GDP. The number of slots created is based on the AAR, and each slot is identified by an alphanumeric label.

Slot ID

A time slot assigned during ground delay substitution/cancellation

Slot List

A modified FADT List. In addition to the information provided by the FADT list the slot list includes the slot ID flight class and information about exempted flights.

Slot_Hold

Slot_Hold is a status that is applied to an Open_Slot so that it is not filled by the compression process. A NAS user normally holds slots when they intend to use a slot but have not yet determined which specific flight will be moved to fill that slot. A slot can also be held by ETMS when a flight is timeout or NAS cancelled

Slot_Time:

The time position of airport capacity allocated to a NAS user. This is the time that the users flight should target for its arrival. The Slot_Time is used to create the Slot Identification, which is a combination of the arrival airport, the slot time, and a suffix to differentiate multiple slots issues for the same minute.

Subs

Data from the EDCT Sub Show command, showing you the status of Substitution processing (SI) for all airports

Time Out Cancels (TOC)

Any flight that is time out cancelled by ETMS, as indicated by presence of a toc message in the flight's message history. ETMS time out cancels a flight if it has not departed within 90 minutes of its ETD, or if it has not departed within 10 minutes of its OAG-scheduled departure time and no other CDM or NAS messages pertaining to the flight have been received. Once a flight has been time out cancelled, it is counted in this statistic even if it subsequently operates.

Time Type

Runw indicates that the message departure and arrival times are runway times provided in a CDM message. Gate indicates that the message departure and arrival times are gate times provided in a CDM message. UZ indicates that the message departure time is the coordinated fix (ARTCC crossing) time provided in a UZ message.

Traffic Management Initiative

These terms refer to the domain of all FSM events (Initial, Revision, Compression, Blanket, Ground Stop and Purge) whether they are for an airport (GDP) or FCA (AFP).

Training Facilitation Sub-Team

The CDM Joint Training Team Objective is to create and provide Information Sharing and Systemic Learning Opportunities

Undeclared Flight

Any unscheduled flight that operates without a CDM FC or FM message submitted by the airline prior to departure. The CDM protocol expects an airline to "declare" its plans by submitting a CDM message to create a flight not contained in the OAG schedule. A flight without OAG or CDM data is considered to be undeclared even if an FZ message has been received from the NAS Host

USER UPDATES MUST BE RECEIVED BY: 27/1500Z

An advisory field that indicates the time the ATCSCC specialist has requested that NAS user schedule changes be submitted by in order for these changes to be incorporated into the GDP.

Virtual slot time:

FSM paramater based on 15-minute effective AAR. The smallest slot time increment is one minute.

Wheel_Arrival_Time:

The arrival time used for rationing airport capacity. The IGTA is set by ETMS based on the first information received for that flight. The IGTA will be set to SGTA, LGTA, or PGTA depending on which is the first value receive by ETMS. IGTA is then adjusted for taxi-in time to determine the Wheel_Arrival_Time.
