FAA Initial Airspace and Procedures
Feasibility Analysis for the Proposed
South Suburban Airport (SSA)

Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) sponsored a study team (FAA Analysis Team) to analyze the existing Chicago metropolitan area airspace structure, proposed South Suburban Airport (SSA), and to determine the feasibility of incorporating SSA into the existing airport system.

The Analysis Team examined the integration of the South Suburban Airport using design and modeling tools to vet notional procedures and conceptual airspace designs. The Analysis Team designed the proposed SSA notional procedures and conceptual airspace to have minimal impacts on other Chicago metropolitan area airport operations, and integration into the airspace structure. This document details the findings of the Analysis Team.
