ENAV Introduction of RNP1+RF and APV procedures in MXP and FCO


Feb. '17OngoingDec. '20

Implementing Partners

Leader: ENAV


Globally, the Implementation Project focus on the introduction of RNP1 (Required Navigation Performance) plus RF (Radius Fix) and APV (Approach Vertical Guidance) procedures at Milan Malpensa (MXP) and Rome Fiumicino (FCO) airports. Vertical guidance used will be both APV BARO (approach with BAROmetiv Vertical guidance)-VNAV (Vertical NAVigation) and LPV (actually Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance 200)

The tailored RNP1+RF PBN (Performance Based Navigation) procedures will accommodate respectively arrivals for RWY 17 in Milan Malpensa and departures for Rome Fiumicino airport. SIDs and STARs will be published for the above mentioned RWYs, both allowing for the use of RF functionality.

The selected procedures will be defined after proper consultation with operational people and airspace users, considering their needs, in terms of flyability and airspace management, of the flight procedures that will be ground and flight validated according to ICAO DOC 9906 requirements by means of ENAV flight check department aircraft and crews.
