This book is written by pilots for pilots and is designed to give you a basic grounding in all the essential radio navigation principles.
The subjects covered in this book are a mandatory part of the EASA ATPL(A) syllabus and, as such, form an integral part of our Padpilot ATPL(A) course.
Commission Regulation (EU) No. 539/2016 Performance Based Navigation (PBN) amends Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1178/2011 (the Aircrew Regulation).
It requires that:
From 25 August 2018 pilots may fly in accordance with PBN routes and procedures provided that they have a PBN privileges endorsement to their Instrument Rating (IR);
From 25 August 2020 all pilots must have a PBN privileges endorsement to their Instrument Rating (IR) or En-route Instrument Rating (EIR).
As of May 2018, several Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) have already adopted PBN in their training syllabus. Consequently their students are entitled to take the new Radio Navigation examination, which will ensure that their IR is suitably endorsed. This Radio Navigation iBook includes a compliant chapter on PBN.
