Abstract: This paper deals with the viability analysis of the implementation of RNAV and RNP AR approaches to Pico Island airport in the Azorean archipelago. The main objective is to prove that this new type of approach technology can be implemented in the Azorean islands airports in accordance with the ICAO rules providing an increase in safety and lowering approach minima thus reducing the costs associated with the operation and maintenance of the traditional approach systems.
