This course details criteria for the design of three-dimensional (3D) instrument approaches for both conventional and PBN navigation.
At the end of this training, the participant, as future procedure designer tutored by a senior procedure designer is able to:
Future procedure designers, regulators of CAA, Air Traffic Controllers, and Pilots for flight inspection or validation, AIS personnel, and other relevant personnel
Attendance of APAC FPP Instrument Procedure Design Course: "Flight Procedure Design online Course - Module 1"and "Flight Procedure Design online Course - Module 2"or equivalent course(s) are required.
Attendees should feel comfortable to communicate in English.
At APAC FPP, according to ICAO doc 9906 volume 2, the initial training of IFR procedures designer consists of three main modules. Each module is independent but completing each other, trainees can choose module on demand. This module is considered the third step in a comprehensive training program to design IFR procedure.
The training is organized around courses, exercises and assessments to apply all the regulatory criteria addressing precision approach and approach with vertical guidance procedures. The pillars of this training include a case study from ICAO 9368 and a real published procedure.
The course deals with:
2 weeks' courses are in remote classes.
Presentation and explanation of the rules and principles described in Doc 8168-OPS/611.
Elementary use of the regulation concepts in a simplified environment, conducted to enforce the theoretical input.
Exercises are daily scheduled.
The exercises about criteria are in remote classes.
Design of PA and APV Baro-VNAV procedures in a geographic and aeronautic realistic environment. The design is carried out step by step under the guidance of instructors. The project also includes the design of Instrument Approach Chart and appropriate documentation.
Several progress tests are carried out to identify the trainee's ability to apply procedure design criteria. Correction of the project is part of the assessment.
At the end of the course, an individual assessment report is provided to each participant.
Contact with referent instructor (s) is provided throughout the course.
