RNAV (Area Navigation) allows aircraft to operate on any desired flight path within the coverage of station-referenced navigation aids or within the limits of the capability of self-contained aids, or a combination of these. An RNAV 1 designation refers to an RNAV specification which includes a requirement for 1 NM (lateral) navigation accuracy among many other requirements.
This is an interim objective aimed towards establishing a global RNP (Required Navigation Performance)-RNAV environment, which requires on-board performance monitoring and alerting. Individual States, airports and aircraft operators will need to evaluate the business need for RNAV 1 procedures according to local circumstances.
NOTE 1: The objective is without prejudice to the obligation to implement RNP1 at the airports listed in section 1.2.1 of the Annex of the PCP Implementing Regulation (EU) No 716/2014.
NOTE 2: The continuation of this ESSIP objective will be re-assessed on publication of the EASA PBN Implementing Rule targeting RNP implementation. This IR is currently under development.
NOTE 3: Aircraft operators who wish to equip their aircraft to derive benefit from the RNAV 1 procedures are encouraged to consider the business case for fitting RNP equipment that will enable them to eventually proceed to the RNP environment.
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.
