RNAV ROUTE DESIGN-TERMINAL AREA DESIGN PROCEDURES AND TRANSITION AREA DESIGN GUIDELINES
This report presents techniques which can be used to produce terminal and transition area route structures that are designed for use by aircraft equipped with area navigation (RNAV) computers. The route design processes were developed during several years of investigation into RNAV route structures for terminal and enroute airspace. The design techniques provide for the consideration of user and Air Traffic Control (ATC) requirements. Among the user considerations are minimization of the number of waypoints and the reduction of aircraft time and fuel penalties by utilizing the RNAV routes. The ATC considerations include procedural separation of arriving and departing aircraft, organization of the terminal area according to traffic flow, and provision for sufficient maneuvering airpsace to permit efficient traffic separation procedures.
