Certifying Self and Aircraft for RNAV (GNSS)

Unread post by Hop Harrigan » Fri Apr 22, 2016 1:31 pm

If someone out there understands this process...please advise
*I am IF Rated
*Have completed an accepted GNSS course and have the certificate
*My aerie is IF equipped and certified
*I have (finally) received a certificate for the aircraft stating that it is certified for GNSS approaches (only if I am PIC)

So now...next step? Is GNSS a "Rating" and does it require additional training and an additional flight test? I have been told YES and NO. If YES, who can provide this training/flight test?

HELP!

Hi Hop. You need to have an RNP APCH endorsement in your license. Requires 3 approaches in the aircraft or sim as far as I know.

I would think a DE and why not combine it with your IF renewal then all is done together. That's the way I and various others did it.

Hi WAD,
The Flight school manager at CDC Aviation did it for me. Purely a paper exercise with cash...for CAA.
If you'd like to pm me, I could refer you

Correct, endorsement in license by DFE!

I did the theory last week at Laseria at 43, then they can also assist with practical in SIM or Aircraft.

Rudi

Thanks for the feedback, how about a youtube/gopro video of yourself flying one as an aid for the rest of us?

Does it have to be a level D sim or can any FNPT11 be sufficient?

Hi Guys,

Does the DFE (I) need to be endorsed to do the skills test?

Hi vdm,
I do believe so. The DFE that I approached is still waiting for his certification, so I’m still looking...
