Performance-Based Navigation – Best Practice Guide for ANSPs

CANSO has published the CANSO Performance-Based Navigation Best Practice Guide for ANSPs.

The document provides practical guidance on performance-based navigation (PBN) as it applies primarily to the terminal and approach environments. It highlights the need for a clear and concise set of design requirements, and focuses on the areas that ANSPs most commonly identified as areas of concern: knowledge, regulation, avionics equipage, resources, and training.

The Guide describes the expertise and partners needed in the design process. It shows ANSPs how to identify and allocate resources and subject matter experts, and to predict, understand and prepare for managing the changes inherent in PBN implementation.

The information in the Guide will be reviewed and updated regularly to capture developments in PBN, including the growing body of expertise of CANSO Members. It is intended to supplement, not replace, the excellent guidance material that is already provided by CANSO partner organisations—ICAO, IATA, and ACI.
