What is PinS (Point in Space) Approach?
 An approach procedure designed for helicopters only that includes both a visual and an
instrument segment.
 PINS is identified through WGS84 coordinate, navigated with GNSS sensor.
 Pins approach is a non precision approach.
 This approach is an RNAV approach for Helicopter, only with basic GNSS receiver
approved by the national authority for the operator. (DGCA India)
 All approaches will be upto a point in space. After that the pilot should have visual
reference to continue to the intended landing site or initiate a missed approach.
 This visual segment connects the point‐in‐space (PinS) to the landing location.
 The flexibility that offers the free positioning of the MAPT is the main advantage of this
concept

VISUAL SEGMENT
• A PinS approach is an instrument RNP APCH procedure flown to a
point-in-space. It may be published with LNAV minima or LPV minima
(GAGAN).
• The PinS approach procedure includes either a “proceed visually”
instruction or a “proceed VFR” instruction from the MAPt to the
heliport or landing location.
• Proceed visually:• The PinS instrument approach segment delivers the helicopter to a
MAPt. A visual segment connects the MAPt to the heliport or landing
location, by a direct visual segment. If the heliport or landing location
and visual references associated with it can be acquired visually prior
to the MAPt, the pilot may decide to proceed visually to the heliport
or landing location otherwise a missed approach shall be executed.

PROCEED VFR
• Proceed VFR:• There is no obstacle protection in the visual segment. The pilot shall
comply with VFR to see and avoid obstacles when proceeding from
the MAPt. to the heliport or landing location.
• The visibility for these approaches is the visibility published on the
chart, or VFR minima as per the requirement of the class of airspace,
or State regulations.
