AIRWORTHINESS AND OPERATIONAL APPROVAL FOR SPECIAL REQUIRED NAVIGATION PERFORMANCE (RNP) PROCEDURES WITH SPECIAL AIRCRAFT AND AIRCREW AUTHORIZATION REQUIRED (SAAAR)
|Publication Date:||8 July 2004|
This document outlines the operational approval process for special (non-14 CFR Part 97) RNP SAAAR operations and addresses the implementation of special aircraft and aircrew authorization requirements similar to current ILS Category II/III approvals. These approvals utilize mature procedure design criteria and aircraft evaluation criteria, and require the applicant to demonstrate the capability to meet requirements as part of the application package. This notice is comprised of the basic document and eight appendices. Appendix 5 is unique since it is divided into chapters containing approach construction and obstacle clearance guidance. Appendix 5 will be moved to an 8260 series directive at a later date.
