PBN Course

As of August 2020 all helicopter pilots who hold an EASA IR will need to have a Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) qualification to continue flying IFR/IMC. This qualification allows pilots to fly PBN (GNSS) approaches and PBN routes.

Starspeed now have the ability to provide complete PBN training in their FSTD at Kemble, including the PBN check/test. On successful completion of the course and check or test, the examiner has the authorisation to enter PBN into the IR holder’s licence which will allow them to exercise the privileges of this rating on any helicopter.

Allow 3 days for the course, which includes full ground school and 3 hours in the FSTD followed by the test. Ground school alone can also be provided if required.
