Implementation of RNP Approaches with Vertical Guidance at the Belgian civil aerodromes outside the Brussels TMA

Description

The project concerns the implementation of Required Navigation Performance (RNP) Approaches (Lateral Navigation/Vertical Navigation (LNAV/VNAV) and Localiser Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) minima) on the instrument runway ends of Ostend Airport (2), Liège Airport (4) and Charleroi Airport (2).


This project is limited to the development of the procedures, not involving the implementation of any technical infrastructure to support it, e.g. monitoring of GNSS or implementation of GBAS.

Objectives

Implement Required Navigation Performance (RNP) Approaches (Lateral Navigation/Vertical Navigation (LNAV/VNAV) and Localiser Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) minima) on the instrument runway ends of Ostend Airport (2), Liège Airport (4) and Charleroi Airport (2).

Achieve compliancy with ICAO Resolution AR37.11, EC Part-AUR , Subpart PBN and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 716/2014 Annex 1.

Expected Performance Benefits

Safety Positive impact 1. Reducing Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) rate
Capacity Positive impact 2. Improved airport accessibility and cost effectiveness, maintaining runway throughput
Flight efficiency Positive impact 3. Reducing fuel cost and flight time
4. Reducing the missed approach rate due to procedures allowing lower minima

Flexibility
Quality

Positive impact 5. Better backup for Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach will be provided by using LPV approach
Interoperability Positive impact 6. Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) allow a seamless global world-wide navigation service
