Goa’s new Mopa Airport successfully completed its first trial flight!

Goa’s new Mopa Airport successfully completed its first trial flight. An Indigo Airbus A320 which had the required navigation performance (RNP) equipment landed at the airport and then took off. This means that the RNP procedure for the new runway was successful. This means the RNP is reliable and accurate.

RNP helps aircrafts to follow paths. This leads to safety because of the accuracy and reduces unnecessary circling. It detects the aircraft’s position. Since this helps to plan departures and arrivals, it increases airspace capacity by shortening the approach/departure paths.

During the RNP process, a flight path is chosen for testing by making an aircraft fly with the RNP equipment. After a successful trial, all airlines can use it.

The Mopa Airport will generate many job and tourism opportunities.
