Once you've passed LBU R-238, the use of BRNAV equipment becomes essential for tracking to KOVAN and ETASA, as these waypoints are not defined by RNAV aids.

Basic Area Navigation (B-RNAV) was introduced to enable en-route capacity gains to be achieved with minimal aircraft capability. BRNAV capabilities can be achieved through a combination of the following:

  1. DME/DME
  2. VOR/DME (within a 62 NM VOR range)
  3. INS (with radio updating or limited to 2 hours of use after the last on-ground position update)
  4. GPS (with certain usage limitations)
