GROUND DELAY PROGRAM (GDP)- A traffic
management process administered by the ATCSCC;
when aircraft are held on the ground. The purpose of
the program is to support the TM mission and limit
airborne holding. It is a flexible program and may be
implemented in various forms depending upon the
needs of the AT system. Ground delay programs
provide for equitable assignment of delays to all
system users.
GROUND SPEED- The speed of an aircraft relative

to the surface of the earth.

GROUND STOP (GS)- The GS is a process that
requires aircraft that meet a specific criteria to remain

on the ground. The criteria may be airport specific,
airspace specific, or equipment specific; for example,
all departures to San Francisco, or all departures
entering Yorktown sector, or all Category I and II
aircraft going to Charlotte. GSs normally occur with
little or no warning.
