Deferral of applicability of requirements on PBN training
In accordance with Article 4a(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011, pilots holding instrument ratings (IRs) must obtain performance-based navigation (PBN) privileges for every IR by 25 August 2020 at the latest.
In view of the diﬃculties experienced by pilots in fulﬁling that requirement due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Lithuania will defer from the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011.
By way of derogation from Article 4a (5) of Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011, pilots holding an instrument rating (IR) without Performance Based Navigation (PBN) privileges may, until 25 April 2021:
only ﬂy on routes and approaches that do not require PBN privileges;
revalidate their IR without PBN items.
After 25 April 2021, PBN privileges will be required for every IR in accordance with Article 4a (5) of Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011.
