FAA Delays Implementation of ‘Climb Via’ and Speed Adjustment Procedures

 - August 14, 2012, 2:55 PM

The FAA will not implement “Climb Via” procedures and phraseology, as well as Notice JO 7110.585 regarding speed adjustment, tomorrow as originally planned, according to NBAA Air Traffic Services. The agency “made a last-minute determination to cancel” the changes “due to concerns over adequacy of pilot and controller briefing material,” it said. “This means implementation will not occur tomorrow. The FAA will determine a revised implementation date and advise industry when that is known.” However, “Descend Via” procedures will remain in place.
