The PBN implementation process represents a shift from sensor-based to performance-based navigation. PBN routes and procedures are designed to meet a required navigation performance (RNP) which is defined in terms of accuracy, integrity, availability, continuity and functionality for the proposed operations in the context of a particular airspace. Commercial air transport operators need to have an operational approval to fly PBN routes and procedures.
The goal of this course is to explain course participants the concept, implementation and operations approval process for PBN.
The following four online modules cover:
Operations Approval. PBN Concept. PBN Operations Approval. States and Regulatory Agencies. State Decisions Influential Factors. Operational Approval Scope. Documentation. Operational Approval Formula.
Pilot, Dispatch, and Maintenance. Area Navigation principles. Navigation system principles. Equipment, Operations and Functionality. Flight Planning. SID and STARs. Approaches - RNP APCH. Navigation Data Chain. Navigation Database Requirements.
