the Secretary of Transportation to establish an equipage incentive

of NextGen capable aircraft in the NAS sooner than would have occurred 
otherwise. Specifically, FAA would aim to increase the speed of 
adoption of NextGen equipage, which will accelerate delivery of NextGen 
benefits by reducing the time of mixed equipage operations. The FAA is 
examining various methods of reducing the Government's risk and

industry feedback about what factors are beneficial to the various 
stakeholders, if such a program were to be created.
