Validating Flight Procedures

AeroNavData’s own Aeronautical Analysts use a Visual Procedure Check (VPC) and DAFIF Procedure Check (DPC) Tool to display terminal procedure coding in the ARINC or DAFIF format, respectively.

Using these distinct visualization tools allows the coded flight path to be analyzed using a variety of simulated aircraft performance characteristics and weather scenarios.  The analyst can clearly visualize if  the procedure coding is free of errors and meets the procedure designer’s original intent, as well as if the designed procedure can be flown according to the intended aircraft’s specifications.

Using the visual check tools allows the analyst to uncover discrepancies in government source documentation, such as:

  • Insufficient vertical descent angles
  • Misplaced fix coordinates
  • Unnecessary or incorrect turn directions
  • Incongruent magnetic variations
  • Inadequate intercept angles
