More Information

Who this course is aimed at? Pilots

Before starting RNAV (GPS/GNSS) approach or LPV approach practical training of the pilot must be qualified to fly RNAV1 (P-RNAV) arrivals and departures in accordance with OM-D and also to fly overlay approaches. It is permissible to combine these courses so that a pilot receives all the required elements of each course and therefore qualifies for RNAV (GPS/GNSS) approached and LPV approaches concurrently.
