|Publication Date:||3 June 2005|
This order contains criteria based on the mandatory avionics features for RNP certification (such as track-to-fix capability) under RTCA DO-236 (latest version). It is written for the use of approach procedure designers to develop public RNP SAAAR instrument approach procedures; describing how to construct the Obstacle Evaluation Areas (OEAs) and evaluate the Obstacle Clearance Surfaces (OCSs) associated with an RNP SAAAR approach procedure. It does not discuss the rationale or philosophical basis of these criteria.
