NAV10 — APV procedures

Implement RNAV(GNSS) APV procedures based on APV/Baro and/or APV/SBAS. The intention is to transition from conventional NPA to APV procedures.

The primarily objective to enhance safety but there are potential benefits in terms of reduced minima and better access to airports without precision approach and landing capabilities. This objective is in line with the ICAO 37th Assembly resolution which recommends States to implement APV procedures at all IFR runways by 2016. It also supports the Performance Based Navigation implementation and harmonisation strategy of the ICAO European Region.

The implementation of APV/SBAS procedures may be restricted by the coverage limitation of EGNOS satellite signal within the concerned airspace.

The need to extend NAV10 for Rotorcraft Operations is recognised and should be based on AOM-0104 limited to standard PinS Approach, which is scheduled for incorporation in the 2017 cycle.

NOTE FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each Military Authority to review this ESSIP Objective IN ITS ENTIRETY and address each of the SloAs that the Military Authority considers RELEVANT for itself. This has to be done on top and above of the review of "MIL" SloAs which identify actions EXCLUSIVE to MIL Authorities.

Expected Performance Benefits

Safety
Reduction in Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) occurrences. Improved pilot situation awareness and reduced crew workload.
Capacity
Potential to enhance capacity due to lower minima than can be achieved through conventional NPA.
Operational efficiency
Improved thanks to shortened approaches, increased flexibility in the use of runways, reduced landing minima for runways with only conventional NPAs, fallback during precision approach system outages.
Cost efficiency
-
Environment
Emissions and noise nuisance reduced by use of optimal flight procedures and routings and the elimination of step-down approach procedures.
