Objective NAV03
ESSIP Plan 2014
Adriatik KOKONA
Comprehensive Explanation
Implement precision area navigation (P-RNAV) procedures to
capitalize on the performance benefits offered by approved aircraft
This is an interim objective aimed towards establishing a global RNP
RNAV environment, and individual States, airports and aircraft operators
will need to evaluate the business need for P-RNAV procedures according
to local circumstances;
 Type - SESAR
 Scope – ECAC;
 Applicability – All ECAC States, except Slovak Republic;
 Initial Operation Capability (IOC) – 01/2001;
 Full Operational Capability (FOC) – 12/2012.

approved aircraft;
ASP02 - Provide appropriate terrestrial navigation infrastructure to support RNAV
ASP03 - Train air traffic controllers in RNAV procedures;
ASP11 - Develop a Local P-RNAV Safety Case;
USE01 - Install appropriate RNAV equipment;

ESSIP Plan 2014 / Objective NAV03
Most important Finalisation Criteria
ASP01 - RNAV arrival and departures implemented in accordance with
EUROCONTROL guidance material and JAA TGL 10 and declared in national AIP,
and in use;
ASP02 - Infrastructure assessed and modified if required to meet the requirements
for DME/DME procedures;
ASP03 - The necessary training given to controllers responsible for the operation of
RNAV terminal procedures;
ASP11 - Local P-RNAV Safety Case finalized and approved by the National
Supervisory Authority;
USE01 - All civil transport aircraft operating in ECAC states are capable of P-RNAV
USE02 - Training manuals have been updated to include RNAV TMA procedures.
The aircrew is trained accordingly;

ESSIP Report 2013
18 states have reported the objective Completed, 16 Late, 2 Not Applicable and 6
States have reported No Plan but are considering its implementation;
Three states have completed the objective in 2013, respectively EE, PT and UA;
AZ, DE and IT have postponed the planning for completion by 1 year, HR 2 years,
UK three years and ES 4 years;
The main reason for delay is that since the mandatory implementation of B-RNAV in
the upper airspace of ECAC 12 years ago, there has been an extremely slow uptake
of P-RNAV in terminal areas.
This situation exists partly due to the fact that operators remain reluctant to obtain
operational approval for P-RNAV until there is a commitment from service providers
to provide benefits by implementing P-RNAV terminal procedures. On the other hand,
because few operators are approved, States are reluctant to publish procedures for
which P-RNAV is required.

Objective Coordinator’s Analysis,
recommendations, tips & tricks
Some states report the objective as ‘Planned’ while describing in the text that only
tentative plans already exist and the implementation is subject to the outcomes of
CBA. In such cases the objective shall be reported as ‘No Plan’;
Some states report the objective as ‘Completed’, while describing in the text that
plans are for the implementation for other airports without providing the names and
the implementation dates. In such cases objective should be reported as ‘Partially

The lack of a mandate for P-RNAV implementation makes it very difficult to apply
more effective corrective measures;
The progress is particularly slow for the medium and small size airports due to the
uncertainty surrounding the implementation in terms of the cost efficiency;
Slow implementation leads airspace users, specifically the ones with P-RNAV
capable aircraft, not certifying their aircraft which, in turn, leads ANSPs not
implementing P-RNAV procedures.
