ZJX Completes STARS Implementation

On Aug. 12, Jacksonville Center (ZJX) was part of one of the largest metroplex projects ever completed. The new Florida Metroplex Standard Instrument Departures (SIDs) and Standard Terminal Arrivals (STARs) systems into and out of the Tampa, Orlando, Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami terminal areas were implemented, marking a massive change to the daily operational procedures at ZJX. The metroplex team, led by ZJX member Andrew Day, have been working on this project for years to make it successful. “The amount of planning and coordination that went into this project was monumental,” said ZJX FacRep Chris Cappo. “Our metroplex team overcame every obstacle thrown at them during the middle of a pandemic to create one of the best implementations we have seen at ZJX. I would personally like to thank all of them for their tireless work and for a job well done.”
