Honeywell/Trimble has been awarded a supplementary type certificate for its HT9100 navigation management system for the Boeing 737 "classic" by the US Federal Aviation Administration. A Royal Air Maroc 737-200 was used for the certification of the system, which will allow such aircraft to operate using basic area navigation, allowing more direct clearances from air traffic control. The Moroccan airline will also become the first to use Aero-I satellite communications, installed on a Next Generation 737, this month.
