Porter Airlines has contracted with Tetra Tech AMT to carry out a Required Navigation Performance (RNP) solutions feasibility study for Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and to provide consultancy expertise in developing a noise footprint analysis.
Porter says it wants to investigate improvements to procedural efficiencies, with the primary focus of RNP procedure design to gain both safety and environmental operational benefits. The RNP project will be instrumental in helping to create a more effective operational network for Porter Airlines.
The study will also advance the development of more efficient procedures to reduce emissions and aircraft noise, while improving weather-related delays.
