|Performance-based Navigation (PBN)|
PBN is one of several elements enabling the Airspace Concept.
|Performance-based Navigation (PBN) is helping the global aviation community reduce aviation congestion, conserve fuel, protect the environment, reduce the impact of aircraft noise and maintain reliable, all-weather operations, even at the most challenging airports. It provides operators with greater flexibility and better operating returns while increasing the safety of regional and national airspace systems.|
|PBN is comprised of three components:
|A navigation application is defined by the implementation of a navigation specification and its supporting navigation infrastructure , applied to routes, procedures, and/or defined airspace volume, in accordance with the intended Airspace Concept.|
|ICAO sees PBN as the vehicle to promote global
interoperability worldwide. The advantage of PBN is that it provides a framework for defining navigation performance requirements and a set of international navigation specifications.
These can be used as needed by regions and States, thereby avoiding the proliferation of different rules for certification and operational approvals, and contributing to the ATM environment in
which interoperability is lacking today.
The interoperability provided by PBN will not only be essential, but will be taken for granted.
