Flight Path Designs Overview
Example of Smart Tracking Flight Paths (Courtesy of UK NATS)Required Navigation Performance (RNP) is a flight procedure that levers satellite-based positioning and modern flight management systems to manage an aircraft’s approach to a runway. RNP allows for flexibility in the design of arrival flight paths that are more predictable and efficient. RNP is the most reliable way to achieve Continuous Descent Approaches, which reduce fuel consumption and noise associated with level segments.
