Flight procedure design

Instrument Flight Procedure Design for airports and Terminal Areas is an increasingly complex activity because of evolving navigation technology, growing air traffic, congested airspace, environmental concerns etc.

Conventional and new RNAV/PBN flight procedure design is also complexed by legislation and design rules. Quality assurance of designed procedures is a mandatory element and Isavia´s Flight Procedure Design department has the infrastructure and expertise to design and verify Flight Procedures, including:

Non-precision Instrument Approach Procedures design or verification, including Global Navigation Satellite System procedure (e.g. VOR/DME, NDB, Localizer and GNSS)

Precision Instrument Approach Procedure design or verification (e.g. ILS)

Standard Arrival Route (STAR) and Standard Instrument Departure (SID) Procedure design or verification

Air Route (including RNAV) and Airspace design or verification
