Nope, I answered the question. Further details are in the FCTM -> Approach and MAP -> Non-ILS Approach. Read that chapter and you will have a great understanding of how modern airliners conduct not only RNAV approaches, but all non-precision approaches.

this is way more helpful so thanks AENTWIS, the FCTM teaches squat about actually understanding what RNAV isRNAV stands for aRea NAVigation and encompasses a variety of aircraft equipment described in U.S Terminal and En Route Area Navigation (RNAV) Operations. Appropriately certified GPS units are considered RNAV as are many Flight Management Systems. Older VOR/DME RNAV units are also consider RNAV units, but in a much more limited way. In simplest terms, an IFR-certified GPS unit is most often the straw that stirs the RNAV drink for most GA aircraft.For RNAV-equipped aircraft, it's easy for a pilot to navigate directly to a VOR, NDB, intersection, or approach waypoint. That's why RNAV approaches are often designed with a Terminal Arrival Area or TAA (not to be confused with a Technically-Advanced Aircraft). The TAA is a T-, Y- or L-shaped arrangement of Initial Approach waypoints designed to simplify the interaction between ATC and the pilot. A good, detailed description can be found in the Aeronautical Information Manual section 5-4-5(d).

Sorry mate, but you didn't ask what RNAV is, you asked how to perform a RNAV procedure, which can be found in FCTM as mentioned before, so not sure what squat didly means to you, obviously a different meaning to me. It even includes a pretty drawing/diagram for you to look at and take in the information.

Pete, we have gone out of our way to help you find the information that you asked for. I couldn't write it any better than the FCTM - it actually describes it in quite a lot of depth, but it does assume a basic understanding of what RNAV is and how it works. I cannot read your mind - I didn't know that you didn't you what RNAV was.However, if this is your attitude towards people who try to help you, next time I'll make sure to reconsider clicking on the "Reply" button to your posts.A little bit of gratitude goes a long way...

No, but the question he asked will be. I am not a mind reader, and I can't see what else you want to know without you writing it.Time to calm down mate.
