An Airline Perspective Prepared by Capt. Ian Varcoe, Air New Zealand
COMMUNICATIONS HF – What standards Datalink – First performance based communications SATVOICE NAVIGATION MNPS RNAV RNP RNP SAAAR SURVEILLANCE China graph pencil Radar ADS C ADS B (Computer integrations) PERFORMANCE BASED WHAT ?
MNPS RNP 10 FANS 1/A (1995) SEPARATION BASED ON ALL THREE ELEMENTS Optimum routing UPRs DARPS Navigation closer to obstacles/ restricted airspace, etc. Less fuel / greater payload Less time ADVANTAGES FOR THE AIRLINE
NON STANDARD PROCEDURES ATC in one location Pilots fly in many airspaces Infrastructure world wide LEADS TO Errors Therefore reduced performance Therefore increased separation Less than optimum performance AIM Standards infrastructure and operations world wide FANS – The GOLD standard CAA / ICAO Lack of timely documentation Nothing to certify against Nothing to gain operational approval against DIFFICULTIES
FANS 1 (FIRST AIRLINE WITH OPERATIONS APPROVAL) OPTIMUM ROUTING AND ALTITUDES BASED ON AIRCRAFT PERFORMANCE GREATER PAYLOAD ON ULTRA LONGHAUL LOWER FLIGHT TIMES RNP AR ZQN Greater reliability of service Increased payload Safety Also used at WLG and ROT AIR NEW ZEALANDS BENEFITS
USE OF AIRBORNE CAPABILITY WORLDWIDE TIMELY GROUND IMPLEMENTATION (Justifies Airline Financial Commitment) STANDARD PROCEDURES TIMELY DOCUMENTATION OPEN MINDS ENHANCED SAFETY WISHES
