PERTI Evaluation Team

The FAA Air Traffic Organization’s Strategic Plan focuses on becoming more effective in the strategic and predictive planning and execution of daily traffic management. This includes accounting for disruptive events by analyzing traffic and constraints from the past built upon data driven analysis to make the NAS even safer and more efficient. Part of this strategic effort is known as PERTI. Each letter represents one of the five key points of the mission – Plan, Execute, Review, Train and Improve. Finally, in promoting the FAA’s sophisticated approach to strategic air traffic system management we enable the outreach to the aviation community on behalf of the ATO, providing subject matter experts and operational insight to our partners. As the PERTI process evolves, collaborative stakeholder engagement in all 5 phases of the process is imperative for establishing success on the mission. Because of the dynamics involved with the strategic and tactical planning of an operation, AJR envisions employing a working group to address and resolve challenges utilizing a collaborative consortium of experience and subjective judgment to further PERTI objectives/strategies. Through a “lessons learned” methodology identifying both positive and negative performances, PERTI delivers the consistent data-driven results industry is seeking. The PERTI Evaluation Team (PET) was activated in May, 2017 and it is expected to support the FAA ATO’s goal of enhancing Traffic Management Tools in partnership with the airlines and other segments of aviation through the CDM process.
