Naverus Expands in China

By Tish Drake | May 29, 2008

Required Navigation Performance (RNP) provider Naverus opened an office in Beijing, as the company looks to expand its footprint in the nation. Naverus, based in Kent, Wash., is working in cooperation with the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), signing a broad Strategic Partnership with the CAAC’s Center of Aviation Safety Technology (CAST). The office will support Naverus operations in China as the company deploys RNP across the country. "We are proud to be a significant part of China's foundation of air transportation safety,” said Dan Gerrity, Naverus CEO. “RNP is the key to safe and environmentally friendly expansion of aviation in China as they add hundreds of aircraft to their fleet and build dozens of airports in the coming decade." Since 2004, Chinese regulators and Naverus developed RNP procedures in Lhasa, Linzhi and Jiuzhai. Currently, Naverus is working to implement RNP at three airports that do not have RNP operations and introduce RNP operations with two additional aircraft types into two of the current RNP airports.
