The compatible equipment installed in modern cockpits is called RNAV, or Area Navigation, generally referring to navigation without the need for going from one navaid to another.
Because a clearance to fly the approach is a clearance to fly the missed, the failure of a navaid required by the missed would prevent the entire approach from being used, even in clear weather.
Because of our aircraft's NAVAID issues, we knew that we needed a plan to fly this approach successfully and safely.
Navaids come in different forms such as lighthouses, beacons and buoys.
It seems that our intrepid flight crew, in the process of setting up for the approach into our deployment base, mistakenly dialed up the navaid frequencies for the international airport in the capitol city.
To critics of outsourcing, or contractorisation, FPL likes to quote the savings to the UK MoD through its contract to calibrate the navaids at Mount Pleasant Airport in the Falkland Islands.
The Rafale ACT (Avion de Combat Tactique) will have a SAGEM Sigma RL90 laser-gyro INS coupled with a Crouzet GPS receiver, plus other navaids. The latter will probably include a terrain profile-matching system.
In other words, the transition from the traditional, "legacy" system of navaids to one based on GPS and WAAS is beginning.
As in our first Interairport appearance in 1999, the areas of expertise that will be highlighted in this year's show are AGL Installation Capability, AGL Control and Monitoring Systems and AGL Training, to this list we now add Navaids, Baggage Handling, Bulk Fuel Installations and a full A6L Maintenance Capability.
The resulting navigational aids (NAVAIDS) studies provided a systematic, incremental set of agreed-upon modifications required by the countries to modernize their military navigational systems and landing aids.
