ILS / RNAV PRM Approaches

ILS / RNAV PRM Approaches

This eLearning module covers Precision Runway Monitor (PRM) types of instrument approaches in use in Atlanta, GA (ATL), Chicago O'Hare (ORD), Detroit, MI (DTW), San Francisco, CA (SFO), and Sydney Australia (YSSY).

The FAA has replaced their ILS PRM video with the slide presentation, "Precision Runway Monitor (PRM) Pilot Procedures." Advanced Aircrew Academy's ILS/RNAV PRM Approach eLearning module has been updated to include the contents of the FAA slide presentation. We also include NASA ASRS reports that cite errors made by business aviation operators.

The NBAA Management Guide (section 2.4) recommends advanced flight crew training above and beyond the regulatory requirements of the FAA as a best practice. That recommendation specifically cites Precision Runway Monitoring training. This training module satisfies that NBAA training recommendation.


For operations under Parts 135, pilots must comply with FAA-approved company training as identified in their Operations Specifications and Training Program Manual. this module meets the FAA PRM approach pilot training requirements published in the FSIMS 8900.1, Volume 4, Chapter 2, Section 4 and the Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM) 5-4-16. The eLearning module is customized to your PRM approach authorizations in Ops Spec C052 and your operations manual procedures.

Pilots operating transport category aircraft must be familiar with PRM and SOIA operations as contained in the Aeronautical Information manual (AIM). Training, at a minimum, must require pilots to view the contents of the FAA slide presentation. Advanced Aircrew Academy's ILS/RNAV PRM Approach eLearning module includes the contents of the FAA slide presentation and the AIM 5-4-16.
