In last Friday’s AVsavvy question, we showed you a flight schedule and some airport information and asked you to find the error.
IMPORTANT: If you haven’t yet participated, YOU CAN STILL TURN BACK NOW AND TEST YOUR SKILLS.
Below is the answer and explanation. Thank you to everyone who participated. We are happy to report a majority of you got it right. J
True. All aircraft must be RNAV1 approved when traveling to/from EHAM
From 15 November 2012 a RNAV1 operations approval is required for all IFR flights inbound and outbound EHAM. This applies to flights holding an air operator’s certificate (AOC) operating under ICAO Annex 6 Part I (International Commercial Air Transport Aeroplanes), as well as flights without an AOC operating under ICAO Annex 6 Part I (International Commercial Air transport) or international flights operating under ICAO Annex 6 Part II (International General Aviation – Aeroplanes)
False. Aircraft don’t have to be RNAV1 approved when traveling to/from EHAM
