Columbus, Ohio-based fractional provider NetJets Aviation last month forged an agreement with the FAA to become the agency’s latest NextGen partner. Under the agreement, NetJets will focus on NextGen initiatives such as area navigation (Rnav) and required navigation performance (RNP) approaches on routes into Teterboro (N.J.) Airport; WAAS, which allows for precision instrument approaches; and data communications. Additionally, NetJets will equip an as yet undetermined number of its business jets with automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) avionics.
