I understand that be able to use GNSS approaches you need to have undergonetraining. Where can this be done. I havenot found a flight school offering training. :

You should be able to do it on a simulator only. But don't think there is one capable in the Cape area.

Then if you wanted to fly it the closest approach would be in George.

BUMP: More questions on same subject...

I like to expand my current IF training/knowledge to include RNAV (GNSS) approaches.

What is the process? Do I need to go back to a Flight School? Is there a test? Is it a rating that gets added at CAA? Can one do it as part of your annual licence renewal with your DE?

Thank you in advance.

It consists of theoretical course at cranfield or 43 advanced and then you can do a flight test with DFE to demonstrate and then get endorsed as far as I have it, open to corrections.

Rudi

You do a theory course. Normally takes about 6 hours. After that we can help you do the practical on our Simulator or on your aircraft. Which ever is best for you. You need about 1.5 Hours in the Sim or a/c.

We provide you and help you with the necessary paperwork for SACAA to add the GNSS/RNAV to your license.

You can do it with a annual renewal, and each year you do a renewal you can ask your DE to sign and endorse it for you.

We at 43 Lanseria have a course booked on the 31st August 2017. Let me know if i can book it for you.

Guys this is a valuable ad - on to your IF rating, remember to have it endorsed in your logbook or CAA will not process.

As NDB cables in places like Margate, have again been stolen, these approaches will be replaced by GNSS, CemAir has had approaches for both Margate and Plettenberg Bay produced, I know Margate is published.

Ditto, I am planning a Mozambique Coastal & Island Air Safari trip, and most of the places I want to land do have only RNAV approaches, so this is what started this all for me (and of course learning new things)!

PS: Where is Margate and Plet Published? I dont see them on CAA.co.za?

Hi Guys,
Is anyone able to obtain the Plet RNAV approach from Cemair for us? Surprises me that it's possible to have your own private approach approved by CAA yet they don't publish it (even if you paid for the survey).
