Does anyone out there know of, or have any information regrading these new arrival designators? I'm trying to locate a textual copy of the info rather than just a "word of mouth" answer.

Thanks

Just started looking into this myself........I think the AC is 90-100 and avail at fly.faa.gov. I'm also going to check the NBAA website. If I come up with anything useful I'll let you know.

OK, it is AC90-100, but the nbaa site shows an update to this AC dated OCT 2005. Update basically deals with RAIM prediction and whether you are in radar contact or not. go to www.nbaa.com click on Flight operations then Airspace/ ATC Procedures.

There was an article in the latest Pro Pilot Magazine on it. The basic requirements are GPS, an FMS with the procedure in the database (not just manually entered waypoints) and RNP 2 for Type A and RNP 1 for Type B.

Make sure you read AC90-100. The article from Pro-Pilot is most helpful. If I can find irt, I will post a link. You may also check with the 121 guys. The larger airports all use them now and they have probably had formal training.

IAH has some good examples of type B DPs. Off the top of my head, both A and B are RNP 2.0 requirements BUT type B requires you to have your equipement certified to RNP 1.0.

Kind of a goofy thing.

Here's an email about the GNS-XLS that was distributed on NBAA airmail....the link is relevant to all units.

To all GNS-XLS users:

I received this communication today from Honeywell. This is a reversal of what we were told last month.

WRT: Further communications concerning AC 90-100 compliance

It's too bad, all of those Global GNS-Xlses out there and they don't even make decent boat anchors. I'll make someone a deal on a couple of them - I'll even throw in the anchor line.

We are looking at selling our 31 and getting an Ultra. One of the concerns is of course how this A-C affects our operation as most of the Ultras have the GNS box.
So, Sled, master of all things regulatory, with the GNS do you still file /L and just decline the DP or STAR if assigned?

Also if anyone has an Ultra they want to sell please let me know.
And if you are looking for a LR 31 - PM me

That is my current understanding. Of course this just applies to the class A and class B procedures. I would imagine that Universal would be more that happy to sell you one or two of their boxes to install in your Ultra.

Don't do that, you'll screw up the flow. In the remarks section of the flight plan, put "no SIDS no STARS". That way, you wont get assigned one in the 1st lace and things go much smoother for ATC. ATC will assume, and rightfully so, that you are STAR/SID capable unless you note otherwise. Don't wait until after the fact to let them know you in fact are not.

That's not quite correct either, you just can't accept the Class A & B procedures. You are capable of accepting and flying the others.

Thanks for getting this out English! I never would have caught this about the GPS units.

I disagree. It's like CDRs. You might have 1 you would like to use and and are famaliar with, but not the others, but if you say you can accept it, you are saying you are capable of accepting any of them at the ATC's discretion. Putting "No Sids/No Stars" in the remarks section is going to save you and ATC a lot of miscommunication. Another option would be filing /K if you are RVSM and /F if you are not RVSM. I think this is an area that needs to be addressed on the NBAA forum in greater detail as there is typically more of a professional crowd over there instead of some of the trolls that you have here. Those guys would probably have a definitive answer, but who knows, maybe not. I know it was discussed there in great detail about a month ago, but I did not follow it like I should have.

Our jet has Globals. We file /L, we don't put anything regarding Sids/Stars in the remarks section. Haven't had a single problem with ATC. Fortunately, we're getting rid of the Globals soon.

ATC will assign you the SID/STAR all day long. What I was trying to say is that if you are not legal to fly the SID/STAR because of your FMS, ATC does not know that. By telling them no sids/star, they will not assign you any SID or STar. If the pilot accepts a procedure he/she is not legal to fly, then flies that procedure, it is on the pilot, not ATC. I think the FAA will say that No SIDs/STARs should have been put in the remarks section. Just my opinion and it is what I would do.

But you ARE legal to fly SIDS/STARS with the GNS. 90% of the SIDS and STARS are still ground based nav, you can fly those. It's only the type A or B RNAV SIDS/STARS that you can't accept.

So the better solution would be to write in remarks "UNABLE RNAV SID/STAR".

FWIW, I find that there is generally better information available here than on the NBAA board. Granted there's a couple of excellent posters (Keith Gordon), but there's a lot of blowhards too.

NO SIDS/NO STARs is a bit drastic. As has been stated before there are a number of procedures that are not Type A or B.

I have been told straight from the folks at Universal that the GNS XL'es are not Type A or Type B compliant.

I like the idea of stating in the remarks "Unable RNAV SID/STAR." I'm wondering if the ATC world is aware of this stuff and will understand that memo in the remarks section. Anyone know this for sure?
