GMR Goa International Airport Limited (GGIAL) said on Monday it had completed the Required Navigation Performance (RNP) procedure for the two approaches – 10 and 28 – to the new runway at the future New Goa International Airport. According to a press release published here by GGIAL, a subsidiary of GMR Airports Limited (GAL), an Indigo Airlines Airbus 320 aircraft equipped with RNP hardware tested and validated RNP for accuracy and ease of flight.
“RNP is a family of navigation specifications within the framework of Performance-Based Navigation (PBN), which enables the operation of aircraft along a precise flight path with a high level of accuracy and the ability to determine the position of the aircraft with accuracy and integrity,” the press release read. The company said adding the RNP radius to set arrivals, approaches and departures increases airspace capacity by shortening approach and departure paths.
