It's funny that people have the urge to split everything in periods of a day, a month, a year and at the end of the period they set some goals, look back at the period that has just passed. At the end of the year that is always very much so. Sometimes people act like one could wake up in the morning of January 1 and all problems are solved, diseases are cured and the clocks start from zero. I assume most of you know that this is not the case but maybe it is in the nature of the human being.
So, I will join the orchestra :-) and say thanks. Simply because I have a period of easy going and energy reloading. Thanks to everybody who was part of my life in this year and makes it what it is: Interesting and joyful.

SBAS APV e-learning available

Dear Friends,
After the launch of the e-learning course for APV-Baro VNAV that has already been purchased by some "keyplayer" organizations in the industry, I have now also finished the full package for SBAS APV I/II. The course provides - as all ANI distant learning packages - a detailed step-by-step guide through the criteria. What I am specially happy with is the detailed description of the FAS Datablock and guidance on how to use one specific publicly available software tool that encodes it.

As I have announced in one of the previous posts, the world should prepare itself for the arrival of a new procedure design software tool PANADES. Now the company that developed it has published a website for it. On the "news" page I assume you will soon see that they will exhibit at the ATC Global in Amsterdam in March 2010.
