Basil Barimo, vice president for operations and safety at the airlines' trade group, the Air Transport Association, described RNAV as a "3-D flight path through space." Before departure, the pilot enters way points including longitude, latitude, and altitude into the flight control computer.
You dial in TXK's altimeter setting and prepare to brief the RNAV 5 approach again.
