Description

The Project aims to implement departure, arrival and approach with vertical guidance procedures following the Required Navigation Performance specification at six Copenhagen Kastrup airport Runways (RWYs), specifically RWY 04 Right/Left, RWY 12, RWY 22 Right/Left and RWY 30.

This implementation is expected to save by 2030 more than 500.000 minutes of flight together with 1.500 tons of fuel. These elements represent a sum of 23 million euros of monetised benefits by that date.

Performance Based Navigation (PBN) in high density TMAs covers the development and implementation of fuel efficient and environmentally friendly flight procedures for arrivals, departures and RNP approach with vertical guidance (RNP APCH).

The implementation of the RNP procedure covers two main elements: the first focuses on the final approach procedures replacing non-precision approach procedures with procedures based on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) precision, whilst the second focuses on the departure and arrival procedures including transition to final approach procedures. To this end, staff has to be trained when the new procedures are operational. Airspace users, aiming to benefit from these new procedures, also have to equip the aircraft with the corresponding avionics. Synchronisation between ANSPs, local airports and Airspace users is essential to exploit all the benefits generated by these flight procedures.

NAVIAIR and Copenhagen airport are designing such procedures, conducting airspace modelling simulations in order to ensure the flyability of the procedures with the support of the local main airlines (SAS and Norwegian).

The complete set of RNP procedures are validated through real-time simulation with Air Traffic Controllers and airspace users’ pilots before being assessed and validated by the regulator for their publication in the Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP).

Disclaimer

A certain number of completed projects are highlighted as it was already possible to provide detailed information on specific benefits brought by these projects. In time, SESAR Deployment Manager will provide such detailed information for every completed project.
