The UK CAA has granted approval for Avsoft's PBN-RNP eLearning course for pilot training to meet the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 539/2016. Performance Based Navigation (PBN) requires that from 25 August 2018, pilots may fly in accordance with PBN routes and procedures provided that they have a PBN privileges endorsement to their Instrument Rating (IR).

This initial course takes about three hours and covers basic principles, definitions, specifications, and terminology; equipment and training requirements; operating principles; different approach types and characteristics; preflight and inflight procedures; use of approach plates; limitations; and associated risks.
