This e-learning course describes the use of Performance Based Navigation (PBN) in the TMA, specifically RNAV1 which within Europe historically has been Precision RNAV (P-RNAV). The e-learning addresses aircraft functionality, the benefits of RNAV SIDs/STARs, the different types of waypoint and how turn performance is affected, and a number of ATC best practices, including RTF phraseology, specifically related to RNAV operations. This e-learning has been updated to reflect both PBN and the 2012 changes to the ICAO Flight Plan.
