Naverus Inc., a provider of Performance-based Navigation (PBN) solutions, will host a free information session addressing PBN implications for business aircraft operators. The session will be held at 1 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Westin Imagine Hotel in Orlando, adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center, where the National Business Aviation Association annual convention is being held at the same time.
“PBN provides just as much value to business aircraft operators as it does to airlines,” said Naverus Vice President of Sales Matt Brown. “Business aircraft operators are keenly interested in safe, reliable airport access, improved fuel efficiency and reduced engine noise and emissions.”
As FAA’s NextGen and Europe’s SESAR airspace modernization plans roll out, business aircraft operators will be able to take advantage of PBN to an increasing extent, he said. But many operators are unsure how to begin the transition from conventional navigation to PBN, he added.
With Performance-based Navigation, aircraft can fly precisely-defined paths without relying on ground-based radio-navigation signals. An advanced form of PBN, Required Navigation Performance, ensures the aircraft does not stray from the path and provides additional navigational flexibility, such as custom-tailored, curved paths through constrained airspace.
