ASPM Diversions Manual
OverviewASPM provides information on flight diversions as detected by an algorithm written by Mitre. Dates and times are based on the local date and time at the planned destination airport. They can be translated to GMT by applying the appropriate GMT offset for the planned destination airport.
ASPM Diversions data can be viewed on the FAA Operations & Performance Data Web site.
