APPENDIX 1 Excerpts from Doc 8071 Manual on Testing of Radio Navigation Aids Volume 1 Testing of Ground-Based Radio Navigation System 4 th Edition 1.15 GROUND AND FLIGHT INSPECTION PERIODICITY General 1.15.1 This document contains nominal schedules for each radio navigation aid that should be considered in the light of conditions relevant to each State and each site. 1.15.2 The nominal schedules should be used by States as a basis for determining the appropriate inspection intervals for specific facilities. In some cases, it may be necessary to carry out more frequent inspections, e.g. following initial installation. It may also be possible to extend the inspection intervals in some circumstances, if the factors outlined in this section have been taken into account. 1.15.3 The manufacturer’s instruction manual usually contains recommendations which are also useful in this regard. Determination of test/inspection intervals 1.15.4 Many factors influence the choice of appropriate intervals for both ground and flight tests. These include the reliability and stability of operation of the equipment, the extent of ground monitoring, the degree of correlation between ground and flight measurements, changes in the operating environment, manufacturer recommendations, and the quality of maintenance. The complete programme of ground and flight inspections should be considered when determining test intervals. 1.15.5 Reliability and stability of equipment is related to age, design technology, and the operational environment. Stability of operation may also be affected by excessive maintenance adjustments attributable to either human factors or variation in test equipment performance. This is particularly true with some older test equipment where the accuracy and stability of the test equipment is not significantly better than the equipment under test. A major contribution to the demonstration of stability of navigation aids in recent years is the design of modern flight inspection systems and ground facility test equipment, where the standard resolution and accuracy are very high.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
