Guidance concerning Air Navigation in and above the NAT MNPSA
Have you planned ahead for any actions you might need to take should you suffer a failure of one LRNS? (See Chapter 11: Procedures in the Event of Navigation System Degradation or Failure).
Are you sure that both your primary altimetry systems and at least one altitude alerter and one autopilot are fully operational ?
Are you familiar with the required procedures for flight at RVSM levels? (See Chapter 9).
If, as a pilot, you have any doubt about your answers to these questions, it may be necessary
for you to consult with the Civil Aviation Department of your State of Registry.
SAMPLE NAT MNPS CHECK LIST
ICAO North Atlantic Working Groups composed of industry, ATC and state regulators have
created a sample oceanic checklist. It is published on the ICAO website as a NAT OPS Bulletin and may be found at www.paris.icao.int/. It is provided as guidance and is not intended to replace an operator’s oceanic checklist.. However, Operators without an oceanic checklist are encouraged to use this sample and tailor it to their specific needs and approvals. This checklist focuses on an orderly flow and ways to reduce oceanic errors. The detail of and the rationale for the proposed actions listed are described in the “Expanded Check List”, which is also published as a NAT OPS Bulletin and similarly available at www.paris.icao.int/. Operators should use an oceanic check list as part of their Safety Management System (SMS). Operators are also encouraged to study the “Oceanic Errors Safety Bulletin (OESB)”. The OESB is also published as a NAT OPS Bulletin.
