Background

The purpose of this Safety Enhancement is to mitigate errors on Standard Terminal Arrival Routes (STARs) and Area Navigation (RNAV) departures, the regulator, the Federal Aviation Administration's Air Traffic Organization (FAA ATO), and industry develop and implement safe operating and design practices for these procedures.

The FAA and industry will collaborate in establishing elements of commonly-accepted safe operating and design practices for flight crews, air traffic service providers, and procedure designers.

  • FAA, in collaboration with industry, develops guidance to align training for flight crews, training for controllers, and procedure and chart design and implementation. (Output 1)
  • FAA Flight Standards (AFS), in collaboration with industry, develops commonly-accepted safe operating practices for crews in order to enhance safety on STARs and RNAV departures. Air Carrier training organizations will develop, review and amend training syllabi to emphasize each air carrier’s policies relating to STARs and RNAV departures. (Output 2)
  • The FAA ATO, with air carrier input, develops commonly-accepted safe operating practices for air traffic control of STARs and RNAV departures. The FAA ATO will develop, review and amend air traffic control training syllabi to incorporate these practices and emphasize policies and procedures relating to STARs and RNAV departures. (Output 3)
  • The FAA ATO, in collaboration with air carriers and industry aeronautical chart providers, develops and implement guidance for improved procedure design and charting to mitigate operational errors on STARs and RNAV departures. (Output 4)
