ICAO-IATA PBN Webinar (Recoded and available at this link)

Updates to the PBN Manual – 5th Edition


This webinar will introduce the key changes to the latest edition of the PBN manual, expected to be published in Q4 2022. The revised edition introduces a number of clarifications and changes based on the experience of PBN implementation since Edition 4 was published in 2013.  These include the use of RF legs in PBN procedure design, the application of PBN to free route airspace, clarification on the holding capabilities referred to in the navigation specifications and the use of VNAV for PBN instrument approaches.


Additionally, significant changes are introduced into the Advanced RNP navigation specification – such as the removal of RNP scalability and the exclusion of the final approach segment – and the introduction of RNP AR Departures (DP) into a new combined RNP AR Chapter.


The webinar will be presented by the lead authors of the revised text, who will provide first-hand knowledge and rationales for the changes.
