- Clear of Cloud
- In sight of ground or water
- 5km (800m by day) vis AND within
- 1. Circling area OR
- 2. within 5nm of AD aligned with RWY centreline and NB ""on slope"" TVASIS / PAPI (7nm ILS RWY) OR
- 3. within 10nm est above ILS glidepath and less than full scale LLZ deflection."
- ENR 1.5 para 1.15
GNSS and PBN standards?
- PBN: Performance-based navigation is the regulatory framework for implementing area navigation, with an emphasis on GNSS as the enabling technology. 2 types of navigation specifications, RNAV (area navigation), and RNP (required navigation performance).
- The difference between the two specifications is that on-board performance monitoring and alerting is required for RNP but not for RNAV. RNAV requires independent performance monitoring of an aircraft’s position.
- RNP has parallel lateral performance requirements and can be supported by a variety of technologies. In Australia, RNP operations require GNSS but can be supplemented by inertial systems.
- GNSS: Global navigation satellite systems receivers, or GPS are the systems utilising the technology required to navigate per the PBN requirements.
- In circling area
- Maintain visibility along intended flightpath
- Maintain visual contact with landing runway environment (Threshold/gable markers etc..), AND either
- 1- By night intercept posn on DW / base / final leg at alt not below MDA and complete continuous descent to landing threshold using normal RoD whilst maintaining obs clearance until aligned with RWY.
- 2- By day maintain min obs clearance until aligned with RWY.
