PBN Transition plan for Serbia
According to European Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1048, transposed in Serbian regulatory framework as “Pravilnik o utvrđivanju zahteva za korišćenje vazdušnog prostora i operativnim procedurama u vezi sa navigacijom zasnovanom na mogućnostima vazduhoplova” („Službeni glasnik RSˮ, broj 68/21), SMATSA is developing PBN transition plan for the Serbian part of Belgrade FIR.
The main purpose of the PBN Transition plan document is to outline and present major steps for transition from operations based on conventional navigation aids to PBN operations (mainly based on GNSS navigation) by 2030.
PBN Transition plan for Serbia contains high level details regarding current and planned operational environment as well as proposed transitional measures with their timeframe – by 2030, the most of the conventional procedures based on ground navaids should be withdrawn and the ground infrastructure rationalized. Only a minimal network of conventional navaids, such as VOR, DME and ILS will remain as a fallback in case of GNSS outage.
It is a regulatory requirement for the ANSP (SMATSA llc) to consult stakeholders before requesting the approval of the PBN Transition plan from the National Authorities. This document has already passed one round of consultations with the Eurocontrol Network Manager, on the NETOPS/RNDSG Special Meeting, held on 17 June 2020.
The next update of PBN transition plan can be expected by the end of 2023 to come into effect on 25 January 2024.
