To enhance air safety, the European aviation regulator, EASA, has outlined a roadmap for the adoption of LPV, the most advanced aircraft approach technology available. By January 1, 2024, every airport within the EU is required to implement LPV on at least one runway end. By 2030, LPV will become the standard, replacing ILS Cat I. Consequently, between 2024 and 2030, many airports will opt to decommission their expensive-to-maintain ILS Cat I systems and replace them with LPV.
So, unless your aircraft is equipped with LPV, your chances of safely landing at multiple European airports may soon be compromised. Discover the European mandates checking the infographic below.
