This allows a filer to request RNAVprocedures for only specific phases of flight. The AIM Section 5-1-9 contains instructions for filing RNAV capability in NAV/. Remember that when including NAV/, enter ‘Z’ in Field 10a.Note 4: When filing a PBN/ code for RNAV or RNP, Field 10 must contain consistent capability information as follows:If PBN/ indicates GNSS (e.g. C2) Field 10a must contain ‘G’If PBN/ indicates DME/DME (e.g. B3) Field 10a must contain ‘D’If PBN/ indicates VOR/DME (e.g. B4) Field 10a must contain ‘D’ and (‘O’ or ‘S’)If PBN/ indicates DME/DME/IRU (e.g. D4) Field 10a must contain ‘D’ and ‘I’Note 5: Insert S1 in PBN/ for those aircraft that have an RNAV system approved for RNAV (GPS) or GPS approaches IAW AC90-105, Appendix A.Note 6: Insert S2 in PBN/ for those aircraft that have an RNAV system approved for RNAV (GPS) or GPS approaches IAW ACcapability for vertical guidance approved in accordance with AC 90-105, Appendix B.90-105, Appendix A, and a barometric vertical nav
