A Market Perspective on FANS
The implementation of the Future Air Navigation System (FANS) will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Different generations of airplane models, each operating in a variety of operating environments will dictate more than a single growth path. How these markets will evolve is a function of our collective ability to assign benefits to specific equipage, to forge new business relationships and to address the market as a global one. Realization of the full benefits of FANS will depend on leadership: who and when.
