Notice Number: NOTC4984
Improper Use of Teterboro RNAV Departures - RUUDY FOUR
This notice expired on
Monday, November 28, 2016

The improper filing and acceptance of RUUDY Four departures (RNAV) at Teterboro airport (KTEB) by aircraft not RNAV 1 capable, has contributed to an unacceptable increase in lateral Pilot Deviations (PDs). Vertical PDs have also increased due to improper automation management and knowledge of Instrument Departure Procedures. The risk of a near mid air collision (NMAC) with arrivals at Newark Liberty Airport (KEWR) makes the precise navigation on departure, both laterally and vertically, critical.

For this reason it is imperative that operators whose aircraft equipment do not meet the RNAV 1 requirements of FAA Advisory Circular AC 90-100 utilize the Teterboro Eight Departure (TEB8.TEB). Pilots electing to use an RNAV system as substitute or alternate means of navigation in lieu of using conventional NAVAIDs on the Teterboro Eight Departure must meet the requirements of AC 90-108.  Regardless of the pilot's selection of departures, increased awareness of position and appropriate automation procedures on departure is critical in maintaining separation from KEWR arrivals.
