This information note explains ICAO’s Performance Based Navigation concept and introduces the Advanced RNP specification as the successor in Europe to B-RNAV and P-RNAV. Prepared by EUROCONTROL, this non-technical brief is intended primarily for airspace planners with a view to demonstrating the link that exists between airspace design and navigation capability.
