Performance Based Navigation (PBN)

Performance-based Navigation (PBN) is the most practical solution for the regulation of new navigation systems technology. PBN is based on Area Navigation, or RNAV, a method of navigation which permits aircraft operation on any desired flight path within coverage of station-referenced navigation aids or within the limits of the capability of self-contained aids, or a combination of these.
