With the new and first-of-its-kind RNP AR NavData service, you can use most U.S. RNP AR procedures without needing to first perform a flyability check. The service is offered to qualified operators who operate qualified RNP AR enabled aircraft (per AC90-101A) equipped with Garmin G1000, G2000, G3000 or G5000 avionics systems.
Here’s how it works…
Jeppesen and Garmin validates all procedures provided as part of the RNP AR NavData service in accordance with Jeppesen’s approved alternate compliance for FAA AC90-101A. However, it’s very important to understand that AC90-101A still requires a flyability check for certain procedures. You must still perform a flyability check prior to using the procedure inflight, in instrument meteorological conditions (“IMC”) when:
- The procedure is non-Part 97 and/or non-U.S. RNP AR (foreign)
- Exception – U.S. operators with RNP AR authorization do not require flyability checks for Nav Canada RNP AR procedures developed using standard U.S. criteria.
- Any procedure that did not pass the validation process
The flyability check requirement is distinct and separate from Jeppesen’s data validation requirement. Nothing herein or provided in the RNP AR NavData service detracts from your responsibilities set forth in FAA AC90-101A.
A procedure that did not pass the validation process will be published on the RNP AR NavData Service Exception Report below.
