Airlines continue to acquire or equip existing aircraft with improved and more capable avionics. Improvements such as the flight management system (FMS) allow aircraft to fly preplanned paths with precision. Attempts to take advantage of improved aircraft guidance to make approaches, arrivals, and departures in the terminal area more uniform and predictable are consequently a natural development in air traffic control. The use of area navigation (RNAV) routes is one example of exploiting the… CONTINUE READING
