Given the specific PBN context, the Handbook:
- amplifies the airspace design elements of the Airspace Concept by focusing on ATS routes as well as arrival anddeparture routes from a PBN perspective (as enabled byRNP or RNAV specifications);
- and plays down non-PBN elements of the airspace concept such as the design of airspace volumes (CTAs or airspace reservations); flexible use of airspace; special techniques (e.g. continuous descent operations); airspace classification or inter-centre letters of agreement which govern operations between centres.
This is a living document whose prime purpose is education and support to PBN Implementation. As such, this handbook will be updated on a needs basis.
