To work collaboratively across the aviation industry (NATS, CAA, Airports, Airlines, Military, GA) to develop and agree an implementation plan to deliver the CAAs Future Airspace Strategy for the 2015-2020 timescale. The FASIIG will work within a fixed two year timescale in order to deliver an implementation plan which delivers a set of tangible benefits within the 2015-2020 timescale or earlier where possible. 02 July 20123ICAO-EUR PBN TF/7Delivery of FASDevelop a FAS Implementation Plan by end of 2012Align it to near and longer term SESAR objectives Monitor & manage the action plan to ensure timely progress The FASIIG will provide the opportunity to develop cross industry positions for input to government and regulatory policy makingIdentify key airspace, technical and policy constraints to realisation of the FASPBN seen as a key element of the FAS implementation plan 02 July 20124ICAO-EUR PBN TF/7PBN Regulatory Enablers UK Air Navigation Order (CAP 393) Articles 124/125Area navigation and required navigation performance capabilitiesAircraft registered in the UK (124)Aircraft registered elsewhere than the UK (125)Policy for the Application of PBN in UK/Irish Airspace02 July 20125ICAO-EUR PBN TF/7ANO Articles 124/125An aircraft must not fly in required navigation performance airspace unless it is equipped with area navigation equipment which enables the aircraft to maintain the navigation performance capability notified, prescribed or otherwise designated for that airspaceThe equipment must be approved, installed in an acceptable manner, maintained and operated in accordance with approved proceduresAn aircraft need not comply with these requirements if ATC, having been made aware of the lack of compliance, authorises the flight or the aircraft complies with any ATC instructions02 July 20126ICAO-EUR PBN TF/7Policy for the Application of PBN in UK/Irish AirspaceApproved at FAB Supervisory Committee Meeting in Dublin on 13 October 2011 Comprises 12 high-level policy statementsThe PBN Policy sets out a specific framework with guidance and support to ANSPs and operators to help facilitate implementationSubject to review and update in late 2012

Environmental policy, cost and business drivers will have an impact on how quickly PBN can be moved forward

The PBN Policy does not contain all of the answers to implementation issues, these will have to be developed separately through the UK/Irish PBN Implementation Working Group02 July 20128ICAO-EUR PBN TF/78AIC - Application of PBN in UK AirspaceApproximates to a UK PBN Implementation PlanA roadmap for ANSPs and Airports seeking to introduce PBN as part of their airspace changesIntended to provide framework for LAMP and NTCALink to Air Navigation Order (ANO) Articles 124 and 125 Still very much an enabling AICSets out 2014, 2016 and 2018 objectives based on anticipated aircraft capabilitiesAIC needs to be read in conjunction with PBN Policy documentYellow 023/2012 refers
