FAA Approval For 787 Advanced Navigation

Boeing has received FAA approval to fly Required Navigation Performance – Authorisation Required (RNP-AR) procedures on the 787 fleet. Airlines that use RNP AR procedures have reported a reduction in fuel burn, emissions and airport congestion by flying along a predefined route using advanced on-board navigation systems together with GPS-based global navigation satellite systems. Following the approval, Boeing can now offer 787 customers full support as they apply for approval to use RNP-AR procedures on their fleets.
