[Avionics Today 11-20-2015] Gulfstream Aerospace has received approval from the FAA for its Gulfstream G650 and G650ER aircraft to fly Required Navigation Performance with Authorization Required (RNP AR) instrument approach procedures. The approval means G650 and G650ER aircraft equipped with PlaneView II and the Aircraft Service Change 901 software upgrade are capable of flying an RNP AR approach to a minimum RNP value of 0.1 nautical miles, including the missed approach segment.
The G650 and G650ER join the G550 and G450, which received FAA approval for RNP AR approaches to RNP 0.3 minima in 2007 and RNP 0.1 minima in 2010.
