Latest IFALPA publication


Performance Based Navigation (PBN) is now being used in many states and areas worldwide. IFALPA welcomes this development for the next generation navigation application recognizing that PBN is necessary to resolve the current effects on flight operations with an increase in traffic, demands on airspace capacity, an increased concentration on ef- ficiency and environmental requirements.
As PBN is implemented several issues have come to light that must be addressed from an individual user, aircraft, procedural/ regulatory, and air traffic system management levels that must be harmonized and standardized. It is important to note that present safety standards should not only be kept but improved with the continuing introduction of PBN.


The PBN procedures, technology and charts must be globally harmonized. This new method of navigation relies on standardized procedures and regulations. It is incumbent on the aircraft operators that they provide meaningful training to the pilots and that a minimum level of proficiency is demonstrated and maintained. The evolution of using these procedures must be done in a pro- active and supportive manner by the operator. This is a much more complicated method of navigating that requires a greater level of precision. There are many safety and efficiency benefits that should be a result of proper implementation. If this is not properly implemented the outcome of a safe aviation system is put at risk with potentially disastrous outcomes.

KoenBeste trapple, Heb sinds kort een one plus 3t met android versie 7. Als ik in de standby app een datum wil selecteren dan sluit de app zich. Daarna moet je alles weer invoeren oftewel de app is niet te gebruiken. Groetjes, Koen Schimmel11 Feb 2017 - 11:17
