What flights require a GPS RAIM Prediction analysis ?
GPS RAIM Predication requirements apply to any flight using U.S. RNAV routes (Q routes and Tango routes), RNAV Departure Procedures (Obstacle Departure Procedures and Standard Instrument Departures), RNAV Standard Terminal Arrivals (STARs), GPS NPA (non-precision approaches using GPS), and Alternate Aiport (if using GPS).

Starting July 1st 2009, GPS RAIM availability must be confirmed for the intended route of flight (route and time) using current GPS satellite information.
How can I check pre-flight GPS RAIM Prediction on FltPlan.com?
