Use of Performance Based Navigation (PBN) For Noise Management
The Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) and Airports Council International (ACI) World have partnered to launch new guidance material for reducing aviation noise and emissions.
In collaboration with aviation industry partners, ACI and CANSO have worked to identify opportunities to enhance operational efficiency and capacity while maintaining the highest level of safety.
New guidance material developed by CANSO’s Performance Based Navigation Workgroup and international contributors from ACI brings together extensive expertise and experience from across the industry and explores the role of operational improvements like performance-based navigation in reducing aircraft noise and emissions.
Performance Based Navigation (PBN) is a concept that enhances aircraft routing and procedures using an advanced, satellite-enabled form of air navigation to enable aircraft to fly a precise vertical and lateral flight path.
