We are delighted to share that Sofema Online has launched a new course:

EASA Part SPA - Performance-Based Navigation (PBN)

About the training:

EASA Part SPA was issued as Annex V to Commission Regulation 965/2012.

Part SPA provides for the implementing rules (IRs), acceptable means of compliance (AMCs), and guidance materials (GMs) related to specific approvals that are available for an air operator certificate (AOC) or air carrier (AC) to apply for. Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) is a powerful airspace design tool that enables the optimal placement of PBN-specified area navigation Air Traffic Services (ATS) routes. Its roots can be traced back to the early 1980s when ICAO set up a special committee on the Future Air Navigation System (FANS). Under RNP, the simplest procedure is RNP APCH (approach), formerly referred to as GPS/GNSS RNAV approaches, designed for use on runways that do not have adequate ground-based navigation facilities. This one-day course will provide an understanding of the history, development, and practical oversight requirements of specific approvals and give insight into the functionality of EASA Part SPA annexes.
