U.S Terminal and En Route Area Navigation (RNAV) Operations with Change 2
This advisory circular (AC) provides operational and airworthiness guidance for operation on U.S. Area Navigation (RNAV) routes, Instrument Departure Procedures (DPs), and Standard Terminal Arrivals (STARs). Operators and pilots should use the guidance in this AC to determine their eligibility for these U.S. RNAV routes and procedures. In lieu of following this guidance without deviation, operators may elect to follow an alternative method, provided the alternative method is found to be acceptable by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). For the purpose of this AC, "compliance" means meeting operational and functional performance criteria. Mandatory terms in this AC such as "must" are used only to ensure applicability of these particular methods of compliance when the acceptable means of compliance described are used. This AC does not change, add, or delete regulatory requirements or authorize deviations from regulatory requirements.
