Very light jet air-taxi operator DayJet on June 10 signed an agreement with the FAA to start a five-year, phased implementation of proven NextGen technologies throughout Florida in collaboration with the Florida DOT Aviation Office and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The first phase of the project (2008 to 2010) will focus on deploying RNP technology for performance-based navigation and ADS-B. The second two-year phase (2009-2011) will implement system-wide information management for enhanced weather awareness and management, while the final phase (2011 to 2013) will deploy performance-based communications for flight planning and flight-plan management.
