This update to the previous edition (published in 2009) contains many important changes for pilots who use GPS to navigate under IFR.

FAA is gradually adopting the concept of performance based navigation (PBN), which includes the old systems of area navigation (RNAV) and refines details of required navigation performance (RNP). For more details about these standards, see AIM Section 2. Performance−Based Navigation (PBN) and Area Navigation (RNAV).
