Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 26th October 2023), and join Flight Operations specialists NAVBLUE, as they showcase how airlines and airports of all sizes worldwide can benefit from RNP AR to enhance efficiency and payload, plus increase capacity. Required Navigation Performance with Authorization Required (RNP AR) has long proved its capability to provide instrument approaches at difficult locations, such as mountainous areas. During this Webinar, the NAVBLUE team will showcase how the technology can be used to benefit all airlines and airports with new concepts and use cases. Using real-world case studies, you will first see the opportunities to use RNP AR for departures, and the benefits it can bring to obstacle optimization and consequently to payload and thrust improvements; you will see the careful consideration to performance that must be given directly at the procedure design level. Next you will see the concept of Established on RNP AR, allowing simultaneous parallel approaches at large airports, including how the usual mode 1 with Instrument Landing System (ILS) is detrimental to performance and how RNP AR can drastically reduce track miles. Finally, you will see a step-by-step guide to gaining operational approval – a process that can be confusing, especially when flying overseas; and you will learn about the NAVBLUE complete RNP AR Implementation end-to-end solution that is tailored for airlines and easy to implement for ATC.
This webinar will be divided into 5 sections:
- What is Required Navigation Performance with Authorization Required (RNP AR)?
First the NAVBLUE team will provide a brief reminder of the RNP AR concept: Definition, difference with RNP, and an example of a common use of RNP AR for approach. As you will see, RNP AR is a PBN navigation specification based on a satellite positioning system. Authorizing a navigation accuracy from 0.3NM down to 0.1NM and turns after the final approach point, the RNP AR concept offers significant operational and safety benefits, positively impacting fuel consumption and pilot workload. Traditional implementation of RNP AR can improve access to low visibility airports, allow improved trajectories through mountainous terrain, and exploit aircraft performance at high-altitude.
- Case Study 1: Using RNP AR Departures to Improve Payload and Thrust.
Next you will see the opportunities to use RNP AR for departures, and the benefits it can bring to obstacle optimization and consequently to payload improvements; you will see the careful consideration to performance that must be given directly at the procedure design level. The NAVBLUE team will showcase a case study from Kathmandu Airport showing how RNP AR allows navigation accuracy down to 0.3 NM and below. You will see how RNP AR Departures optimize payload and thrust.
- Case Study 2: Using Established on RNP AR (EoR) Concept for Parallel Approaches.
Next you will see the opportunities for using Established on RNP AR to improve capacity and reduce fuel consumption at large airports. The NAVBLUE team will run through a definition of the concept, as well as an explanation of the current limitations with parallel approaches using Instrument Landing System (ILS), followed by details and information regarding the constraints and considerations for EoR. You will see a case study from Tianjin Binhai Airport, showcasing how EoR significantly improves the efficiency of simultaneous independent approaches:
– The RNP AR trajectory is much shorter than the ILS, with a track miles reduction of between 10 and 30 miles per approach.
– The ILS trajectory itself is also shortened as the constraint for 1000 feet vertical separation is removed.
- Step-by-Step Guide to Gaining Operational Approval for RNP AR
Next, the NAVBLUE team will cover the notions and concepts on RNP AR Operational Approval. Specifically, they will summarize the general approval requirements, and specificities to operate RNP AR in a foreign country. Finally, you will see the EASA generic vs specific approval and its practical implications.
- RNP AR Implementation: NAVBLUE end-to-end Solution Tailored for Airlines
Finally, NAVBLUE will provide an overview of their complete RNP AR Implementation end-to-end solution tailored for airlines and easy to implement for ATC. As you will see airlines are supported through every step of the process and all stakeholders are involved, from a feasibility study, to support for RNP AR upgrade on the aircraft, to operational approval, including Flight Operations Safety Assessment (FOSA), to ATC training; and more.
About the Aircraft IT Webinar Series:
Every 2 weeks the Aircraft IT website hosts a different live Webinar, each Webinar hosted by a different IT Vendor. These sessions represent the perfect opportunity to learn about a software solution in a more informal manner and to quickly gain an in-depth knowledge of all the major systems on the market, all from the comfort of your own office or home with no sales pressure.
The IT vendor provides a live software demonstration/masterclass of their solution and explains how it can benefit airlines, MROs, Operators, OEMs, Leasing Companies. Once logged on, online delegates can ask questions via the interactive sections of the Webinar or simply sit back and watch and listen to the demonstration. There are two sessions during the day, each differently times to accommodate all time zones.
Each Webinar session is recorded, and an On-Demand version is then posted back to the Aircraft IT website a few days after the live session to allow you to view the content again with your colleagues. The library of On-Demand Webinar recordings provides an invaluable reference source of Flight Operations software demonstrations from the World’s leading Flight Operations IT Vendors.
