PANS-OPS Training

Approach with Vertical Guidance (PA & APV)

Offered to procedure designers with a solid practice of NPA design and an efficient knowledge of general design criteria, this course is provided in French or in English at ENAC (Toulouse, France) and is the follower of the NPA and departures course (IPD2).

The aim is to apply procedure design criteria for approaches with vertical guidance (PA and APV). ILS without GP criteria are used to design NPA for LOC only procedure.

It includes lectures based on Doc 8168 criteria supplemented by exercises. A project conducted by team of two or three trainees is proposed in a real French aeronautical environment.

Report, charting and general layout of protection areas are required and assessed at the end of the training. Two tests are conducted during the training.
