PBN Implementation Plan - New Zealand - Version 1 - 16 Dec 2009

Operators and Pilots – Important Information

Advisory Circular AC91-21 is draft only. Please note, the following:

  • Legacy IFR GNSS approvals may continue to be operated. The 13 Nov 2014 deadline does not apply.
  • The restrictions described regarding the use of legacy IFR GNSS approvals still apply.
  • Legacy IFR GNSS approvals will continue to be issued.

The CAA is working on PBN implementation as part of New Southern Sky.

In 2015, operators and pilots will be encouraged to contribute to the development of PBN implementation, with consultation on standards, equipment and operating procedures. Once the new standards are in place, some operators may need to upgrade equipment and develop new procedures so they can continue using PBN routes. The CAA will advise when and how you can have your say in 2015.
