Toulouse, France, Dec 18, 2018

Runway excursions is the number one cause of commercial aviation accidents in the world. NAVBLUE and Airbus have introduced successfully effective measures to reduce and eliminate the risk of runway excursions.

NAVBLUE and Airbus have pioneered over the years ROPS+ an on-board cockpit technology which is now in service on A320 Family, A330, A350 and A380 aircraft families.

  • 80+ operators worldwide trust ROPS+
  • 3+ million landings with ROPS+

ROPS+ continuously monitors the aircraft’s position with respect to the remaining runway length and calculates whether the aircraft can safely come to a stop.

ROPS+ is embedded in the aircraft and is connected to the aircraft systems which takes into account aircraft performance, accurate runway length as well as the local environmental conditions.



NAVBLUE is an integrated Flight Operations and Air Traffic Management Services company providing end-to-end, innovative and integrated flight operations solutions for a wide-range of customers around the world.
