Instrument Flight Procedures (IFP) provide access to aerodromes under a wide variety of meteorological conditions and enhance safety by providing standard procedures for pilots and air traffic control. Due to evolving navigation technology, growing air traffic as well as environmental demands, instrument flight procedure design is becoming a more and more complex task.

The ICAO Document 8168 „PANS-OPS“ specifies in detailed criteria the requirements of instrument flight procedures and their protection. Hereby obstacle clearance is the primary safety consideration.

This 5-day course provides a comprehensive overview of flight procedure design and obstacle clearance criteria specified in ICAO PANS-OPS. It is designed for all persons seeking an insight into instrument flight procedure design.

Besides basic procedure design principles (e.g. navigation, fixes, protection areas and obstacle clearance), especially departure and approach procedures are covered. Procedures based on conventional navigation as well as on area navigation (RNAV) and performance-based navigation (PBN) will be catered for. An important role has the ILS precision approach, whose specialties will be shown (e.g. ILS OAS and CRM). The basic principles of flight procedure design as well as possibilities and restrictions when designing instrument flight procedures – considering the complex environment (e.g. air traffic control, airspace, navigation and noise) – will be discussed.

Attendees will learn to understand instrument flight procedures which will help them to discuss and judge on design questions.
