The FAA recently began assigning eligible area navigation (RNAV) equipped aircraft the DUUKE ONE RNAV departure procedure from John Wayne-Orange County Airport (SNA) in Santa Ana, CA. Since the procedure was implemented, a business aviation operator was involved in a pilot deviation from the procedure that required ATC intervention to resolve the situation. It is imperative that operators review the procedure prior to departure and ensure the aircraft is flown in accordance with the procedure and ATC instructions.
