Boeing gains FAA approval to fly Advanced Navigation Procedures on 787
Boeing has received FAA approval to fly Required Navigation Performance – Authorization Required (RNP AR) procedures on the 787 fleet. Operators that fly RNP AR procedures significantly reduce fuel burn, emissions and airport congestion by flying precisely along a predefined route using advanced on-board navigation systems together with GPS-based global navigation satellite systems. As an FAA-approved RNP application service provider, Boeing can now offer 787 customers full support as they apply for approval to use RNP AR procedures on their fleets.
