an introduction to performance based navigation (PBN) and RNP

Unread post by Jayson v Schalkwyk » Mon Jul 01, 2019 3:46 pm

I was doing some online training and was sent to this Eurocontrol link. I am not sure that I could past the 20 page document here but the link is provided for those who would like more info on PBN and the differences between RNAV and RNP. Yes, its Eurocontrol focused, but the ideas and concepts are universal.

Am considering whether it would be worth my while to present similar type courses at obviously the non-$ prices but it would depend on the interest. Ideally I would also link it through a local training organisation for the accreditation at the SITA etc. So who's interested?

I am intereseted. I have the equipment in my plane to do GNSS approaches, but have not done the course yet.
I've done practise GNSS approaches in VMC, using my GTN650, Aspen and the autopilot. Works great. With all the beacons disappearing it will become a necessity.
I'll be visiting Aero Africa today and inquire there as well.

sg for the record, yes I would be interested in a PBN course. I come from an RNAV 1 and basic RNP background but retired before PBN really kicked in so I have been left behind.

Like Iceberg I have a GTN650 which is crying out to be used more and I find that even in VMC PBN makes sense to find unfamiliar airports with IFR approaches.
