Performance Based Navigation (PBN) Regulations
The PBN Regulations eLearning module doesn’t replace the formal training pilots need to have, but it provides a useful overview of the requirements of their on-board navigation equipment and the navigation specifications that must be included in their flight plans. It is important for pilots to complete the flight plan correctly as air traffic control clearances are provided consistent with these capabilities.

You will need adobe flash player version 10 or higher for these modules - install Adobe Flash Player.

This module is about Part 99, and can be used as part of drug and alcohol management plans (DAMP) that organisation’s are required to have in place.
