QDMs ?
Do UK military still teach QGHs ?
[Radio Ranges ? :wink: ]

I think they still use the 1 in 1 VDF and QGH procedure.

Thanks for your replies, everyone! I will definitely look at that recent CAP 413 update in preparation for when the phraseology kicks in.

('RNP approach...')

I have never been referred to as an honourable gentleman before. Thank you, I feel honoured!

Myself and a few others jointly pay for a subscription to Jepp View too, so I am assuming that the charts on there will update the wording (approach names) when they come in.

Sorry to disappoint, but there isn’t a recent update to CAP413 that references the change of RNAV to RNP nomenclature.

It was changes to CAP797, the AFIS manual, which were recently notified. I believe UK AIP plates will start being renamed from September onwards, so I’d expect changes to CAP413 to be aligned with that.

Edition 23 (Corrected) is the latest version, effective from 17/8/20.

It still refers to RNAV(GNSS) approaches.

Or 2D and 3D approaches :thumright:

Two donkeys approaches? Blimey he gets everywhere!
