I know it is a troll post. But I had a client that did the maintenance on equipment and it is not cheap! Awesome talking with someone that deals with the infrastructure first hand. I just wish there were cheaper ways to get the information into our old G1000 and to be able to use the RNP approaches and fit in with the airlines. I hate hearing everyone get delay vectors because we are on a different approach to everyone else.
RNP is awesome. The day everyone can go straight from the STAR to an RNP will be amazing.

I've often wondered if an artificial island airport somewhere offshore, with plenty of parallel runways and a subway or ferry connecting it to the city, would be a good idea as a replacement for EWR, LGA and JFK. But it might be cheaper to build it on land to the northwest, as in your suggestion. Perhaps it could even be a (very major) expansion to an existing airport, like Hackettstown.
But the NY and NJ would argue about who owns it...
