Design of Flight Procedures
What is a Flight Procedure?
An instrument flight procedure is a set of predetermined manoeuvres with specified protection from obstacles designed to achieve safe flight operations and an orderly flow of air traffic. Flight procedures linked to an aerodrome are specified as arrival, departure or approach procedure. They are published on aeronautical charts and usually coded into a navigation database e.g. aligned with ARINC 424 standards for use in Flight Management Systems (FMS).
What is the gain of professional Flight Procedure Design?
Professional and thorough design of flight procedures is conducted in conformity with applicable regulations, taking into account airspace user requirements and local restrictions. NavDelta’s expertise in flight procedure design allows aircraft to perform safe operations optimised for time and fuel consumption while respecting environmental considerations.
NavDelta will present to you what an immense difference a proper design of flight procedures can make. Implementing solutions delivered by our company will help you to:
- Increase the capacity of highly congested airspace without reducing the level of safety.
- Enhance accessibility of complex and remote locations e.g. by implementation of satellite-based procedures to LNAV, LNAV/VNAV and LPV minima.
- Optimise flight procedures in order to consider environment and to align the airport with contemporary technology.
What are our activities?
- RNP approach procedures to LNAV, LNAV/VNAV and LPV minima, also for locations where conventional navigation aids are not available.
- Conventional instrument approach procedures with vertical guidance to CAT I, CAT II and CAT III minima as well as procedures without vertical guidance.
- RNP AR (Authorisation Required) procedures in order to allow operations where PANS-OPS procedures are not possible to implement.
- Procedures for aircraft operators considering individual circumstances of our client.
- IFR procedures to non-instrument runways.
- Flight procedure design of standard instrument arrivals (STAR) and standard instrument departures (SID).
- Aeronautical Charting.
- Maintenance, revision and optimisation of existing instrument flight procedures.
- Evaluation and impact analysis of obstacles with regard to existing flight procedures, assurance of published minima and safe aircraft operations.
