PBN COURSE

– Performance Based Navigation –

The PBN Course is an essential requirement for all Instrument Ratings (IR) from 2020, which must be supported by a Certification in PBN Approaches (Performance Based Navigation), by completing a course in an authorized ATO.

Our PBN Course aims to acquire the necessary skills established by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for Performance Based Navigation (GPS).

Our Alsim AL42 FNTP II and Alsim ALX simulators are duly certified according to the requirements for the teaching and proficiency test of the PBN course.

PBN COURSE
CONTENT STRUCTURE

The course will begin with the theoretical phase, in which the regulated knowledge will be acquired to obtain the PBN certification.

After the theoretical part, the corresponding simulator sessions will be held with briefing and de-briefing to ensure maximum use of all sessions. Procedures and manoeuvres performed in each session will be discussed for the subsequent passing of the skill test.

PBN COURSE PROGRAM

THEORY

The theoretical program of the PBN Course consists of 8 notional hours in which flight procedures, systems, sensors and area navigation functionalities will be identified that will guarantee the scope of the standard required by the International Civil Aviation Organization – ICAO.

8h THEORETICS + OFFICIAL EXAM

The theory consists of the following modules:

  • PBN Concepts
  • Navigation Specifications
  • PBN Use
