Naverus Gets FAA OK for RNP Procedures

By Tish Drake | April 10, 2007

FAA said it authorized Naverus, Kent, Wash., to be a required navigation performance (RNP) procedure developer, providing airlines, other aircraft operators and airports with design of RNP procedures, integration, quality assurance, flight validation and maintenance services. Naverus is the first organization identified by the FAA for services needed for implementation of an RNP program. “While the FAA will continue providing these types of services, operators now have the option of using Naverus to accelerate their realization of the significant safety, efficiency and environmental benefits available from RNP,” said Steve Fulton, Naverus co-founder and Chief Technology Officer. Naverus developed RNP programs and secured operational approval for several airlines including WestJet, Qantas and Air China. The FAA's authorization of Naverus as a provider of RNP products and services is similar to designations the company has received from regulators in other countries. For related news
