Performance Based Operations Aviation Rulemaking Committee (PARC)

The PARC provides a forum for the United States (U.S.) aviation community to discuss, prioritize, and resolve issues, provide direction for U.S. flight operations criteria and produce U.S. consensus positions for global harmonization. PARC input was invaluable in the drafting of the Roadmap for Performance-Based Navigation as well as the PBN NAS Navigation Strategy, and they have helped update numerous FAA regulatory documents. They continue to provide guidance and recommendations to help the FAA transition to a performance-based National Airspace System.
