Kent, WA-based Naverus announced today it has received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to design and test “required navigation performance” flight paths for public use in the U.S. That means Naverus’s navigation software and flight patch design can now be used widely by U.S. airports and airlines to help make flights faster, safer, and more fuel-efficient. Back in April, Naverus raised $4 million in follow-on venture funding led by Foundation Capital and East Peak Partners.
