BBGA Member TAG Aviation Spain obtains RNP Operations Approval

TAG Aviation Spain Obtains RNP1 Operations Approval

Madrid, 13th July 2016 – TAG Aviation Spain announced today that it has become the first Spanish operator to obtain approval to fly Required Navigation Performance (RNP1) flight paths.

RNP regulatory approval has been awarded to TAG Aviation Spain by the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency (AESA) which is a requirement for certain flight path destinations out of the country such as to Hong Kong and Singapore.

As part of the application process TAG Aviation’s Spanish Flight Centre had to ensure all private aircraft using the facility are compliant with RNP operations and that appropriate procedures, documentation and training are in place.

“We are proud to have become the first operator in Spain to receive RNP1
Certification which enables us to use safer and more efficient flight paths. As air traffic
management (ATM) systems in the world evolve there is an increasing dependence on RNP operations as a foundation for improvements in airspace design and management, safety, operational efficiencies, and environmental advancements” said Carlos Carasa Martin, Director of Flight Operations, TAG Aviation Spain. “Many operators have begun to implement changes in their ATM systems and more are expected. These changes will allow RNP-capable aircraft to derive value from their existing capabilities and as the new ATM environments continue to grow this will provide greater opportunities for further operational development.”

RNP flight path operations is the global benchmark for all future aviation navigation and can help improve the safety, capacity, efficiency, access and environmental impact of an aircraft’s airspace. TAG Aviation’s RNP- capable aircraft fleet will provide more opportunities for operational efficiencies and better use of multiple
airport runway configurations and increased airport capacity.
