NAV03.1 — RNAV 1 in TMA Operations

Performance-based navigation distinguishes between RNAV and RNP Specifications, both of which rely on area navigation techniques which allow 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 specification includes several requirements, one being a requirement for the lateral and longitudinal total system error (TSE) to be within +/- 1NM at least 95% of the flight time.
Individual States, ANSPs, and airports will evaluate the business need for SID routes or STAR routes. Where providers of ATM/ANS have established SID or STAR, they shall implement those routes in accordance with the requirements of RNAV 1 or RNP1 specification, as applicable.
PBN Regulation (EU) 2018/1048 of 18 July 2018, does not impose obligatory establishment of SID or STAR (business decision on having SID or STAR is up to an individual stakeholder). However, the regulation does prescribe obligatory set of specifications to be complied with, where a stakeholder had decided to establish SID or STAR.

NOTE: Where higher performance requirements than RNAV 1 are required in order to maintain air traffic capacity and safety in environments with high traffic density, traffic complexity or terrain features, SIDs or STARs shall be implemented in accordance with the requirements of the RNP 1 specification. See objective NAV 03.2 for details.

NOTE FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each military authority to review this 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 military authorities.
