April Fools! zDC & ZNY Agree on Airport Exchange Program
« on: April 01, 2017, 10:43:03 am »
Everyone,

I am glad to finally announce after three months of work that ZDC and ZNY have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to establish an airport exchange program. While the details of airspace changes have not quite been finalized we have agreed to the following:
ZDC will take over the PHL TRACON, it is undecided if this will affect operations at WRI.
ZNY will take over the ACY TRACON.

The steering committee will continue to work out the details. We expect this exchange to last ninety days from implementation to see if we want to make it final.

I'm glad to see you finally got this done, before you pass the reigns over to John Manley as our new ATM.

Ok, Justin. Let's just say this is how we try to work with neighbor artccs and how it turns out.There are much works and thought that needs to put into this before any actual thing happens.

Yeah I know. PHL is way much bigger and more important than ACY. I know it is really really hard to exchange PHL with ACY.

There are other things as well. We won't be getting PHL any time soon.
