ICAO resolution 37-11 requires States to develop a PBN implementation plan. In the EU, the PBN IR, EU Regulation 2018/1048 requires States to develop a PBN Transition Plan. Therefore, it is logical for States to incorporate their PBN Implementation and Transition Plan in a single document.
It is expected that the State (Ministry of Transport or CAA) will develop the policy and strategic roadmap and the Service Provider will define a deployment plan to deliver the policy goals. Initially the State, will detail the strategic vision and ask the Service Provider(s), to lay out its plans for delivering that strategic vision. The PBN Implementation and Transition Plan may, or may not, be completed in partnership; however, a collaborative approach is highly recommended.
The State’s airspace requirements will be developed by the National Supervisory Authority. The NSA will clearly identify the State’s high level principles before setting out the ‘drivers’ for change, the ‘why’, together with the directive to the Service Provider to undertake the work and the required timeframe for implementation, the ‘when’. The Service Provider will then respond by identifying the actions that must be undertaken to meet the strategic objectives, the ‘what’, the location of the required changes, the ‘where’, the migration from current operations to the future environment, the ‘how’, and the key personnel required to successfully deliver the implementation, the ‘who’. The output of this work would be a set of Deployment Deliverables, which is the culmination of the joint work created by the NSA and the ANSP. These Deployment Deliverables identify what is to be achieved in terms of PBN implementation and provides the answers to the questions why, what, where, who, when and how.
As the EU Regulations driving European PBN implementation have explicitly specified which navigation specifications and attendant applications are to be implemented in different flight phases. Therefore, this minimises the choices to be made by the State and the ANSP, as regulatory compliance is required.
