MINIMUM NAVIGATION PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION AIRSPACE. The vertical dimension of MNPS Airspace is between FL285 and FL420 i e in terms of normally used. cruising levels from FL290 to FL410 inclusive, The lateral dimensions include the following Control Areas CTAs. REYKJAVIK to the North Pole,SHANWICK AND GANDER OCEANIC. SANTA MARIA OCEANIC North of 27 N, NEW YORK OCEANIC North of 27 N but excluding the area west of 60 W and. south of 38 30 N, Some idea of these dimensions can be obtained from the map on the cover and the maps in Chapters 2.
and 4 However for specific dimensions reference should be made to ICAO Regional Supplementary. Procedures Doc 7030 NAT RAC para 2 2 1, Pilots MUST NOT fly across the North Atlantic within MNPS Airspace nor at flight levels designated. as RVSM Airspace unless they are in possession of the appropriate Approval s issued by the State of. Registry or the State of the Operator, The North Atlantic is the busiest oceanic airspace in the world In 1997 more than 300 000 flights. crossed the North Atlantic and annual traffic growth rates are typically 5 to 10 For the most part in. the North Atlantic Direct Controller Pilot Communications DCPC and Radar Surveillance are. unavailable Aircraft separation assurance and hence safety are nevertheless ensured by demanding the. highest standards of horizontal and vertical navigation performance accuracy and of operating. discipline Within NAT MNPS Airspace a formal Approval Process by the State of Registry of the. aircraft or the State of the Operator ensures that aircraft meet defined MNPS Standards and that. appropriate crew procedures and training have been adopted. iii 8th Edition,NORTH ATLANTIC MNPSA OPERATIONS MANUAL.
