Could someone tell me what "RNP-10 navigation requirements" are? Also would a early 90's King Air 350 with Collins avionics meet this?
ATCER said:At first look I thought you might be joking... but I do realize that all these types of equipment can be confusing. You will only find RNP-10 on the top of the line tras oceanic aircraft, actually trans pacific a/c. The 744, 772, A343's. etc would be about it. I know little about equipping an a/c but I would be about 100% sure that a king air could NOT be equipped nor would it need to be.
Just out of curiosity... where did you here about RNP-10 ?
2000flyer said:Well, not exactly. Most Falcons comply, as do Gulfstreams, Challengers, Globals, etc. RNP-XX isn't based on the size of the aircraft, but the navigation equipment installed. While RNP accuracy isn't much of an issue in the states, yet, it is becoming more so in the EU. BRNAV, or "Basic Area Navigation" has an RNP value of 5. This includes US operators flying in Europe. I've seen several light jets and King Airs with US registration in Europe and I'm sure they are bound by the RNP 5 (BRNAV) requirements.
Here is a link, http://www.ponceby.com/plane.htm, of a 1974 King Air E90 that is capable of RNP-5/10. Remember, it's the equipment, not the aircraft.
