The Next Generation Air Transportation System or NextGen is implementing or plans to implement a satellite-based air-traffic control system across the United States.

To The Next Generation Air Transportation System Planners:

The VTOL JetCar is coming! Here are some ideas as to how it can be managed:

- The Automated Vertical Flight Authorization Concept (page 2)
- Requesting automated vertical takeoff clearance (page 3)
- Human oversight (page 3)
- Aircraft pre-flight self-diagnostics sent to authorization
satellite for 'green-lighted' takeoffs within 'city limits' (page 5)

I urgently request that Vertical-Takeoff Authorization computerized subsystems hitch a ride on Air Traffic Management Satellites, that are scheduled for launch in the near future.
