Boeing and CAAC Meet to Discuss PBN Development in China


Boeing and the CAAC met October 29th-30th to discuss the framework for the PBN (Performance Based Navigation) operational concept developed by ICAO. VP of Government and Legal Affairs for Boeing Dan Mooney and CAAC Deputy Director Li Jian attended the meeting, which was presided over by Jiang Huaiyu, Director of the Flight Standards Department of CAAC.
The PBN navigation application will significantly streamline China’s civil aviation sector by increasing security and flight efficiency as well as reducing ground personnel and facilities overhead. The CAAC has already set up a PBN implementation team coordinated by Vice Minister Jian. Other members of the team include Su Langen (ATMB Director) and Jiang Huaiyu (CAAC Flight Standard Department Director). During the meeting, China’s PBN team outlined the current status of PBN implementation, and they listened to detailed technical presentations from Boeing specialists. The two sides discussed the overall structure of PBN introduction, as well as the specific cooperation of the two sides in the future. Dan Mooney said the CAAC has made strides on civil aviation operation and management and that Boeing is likely to expand cooperation and communication with CAAC. Li Jian commented that the PBN program has a solid foundation, and two sides are working close together to assure a bright future for the project.
