Reference KONT GPS Z 26L :
I have never seen a GPS/RNAV approach like this. Can anyone explain this approach?
Thank you in advance for the feedback.

It can not be flown by general aviation. Only authorized users (airlines) are permitted to fly the procedure. Authorized users include properly equipped aircraft with properly trained and certified crews. This is effectively an airliner only procedure. It uses Baro-VNAV for the vertical guidance and GPS/FMS for the lateral guidance. The RNP term is for Required Navigation Performance and involves mainaining the course centerline within the RNP value 95% of the time.
