This decision point is normally internal to the project team and is the point where the design team declares it is satisfied with the new airspace concept.
The Project Checkpoint is a decision point, usually internal to the project team, and is the point where the design team declares it is satisfied with the airspace concept’s suitability for implementation, or decides to re-develop the airspace concept or, in the worst case, elects to abandon the project altogether.
What could be the deciding factors?
During the validation process, it should become evident whether the proposed PBN implementation is possible and will meet both the project’s performance and safety objectives. Therefore, this is the most likely place to make the decision as to whether to progress the effort and go ahead with implementation. Other factors that can influence the ‘Go’ decision and could prevent the implementation going forward:
An aware and fully integrated PBN Implementation team should not be caught out by last minute surprises described above. However, the possibility of unexpected events is one of the reasons why it is necessary to fix a go/no-go date for implementation.
