LPV LPV

LPV

Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) enables flight crews to fly an approach similar to the ILS CAT 1 minima, with the benefit of not requiring ground-based landing aids. Instead, the LPV approach utilizes a Space-Based Augmentation System (SBAS).

Such a system is available in several high traffic regions of the world, including WAAS (U.S.) and EGNOS (Europe). As of December 2020, all instrument runways ending with a non-precision approach (NPA) within Europe must have an approach based on LNAV/VNAV or LPV.

Our standalone solution requires no changes to the aircraft’s existing avionics architecture.

The Solution

The Fokker Services solution for LPV is a standalone solution which requires no changes to the aircraft’s existing avionics architecture. It can also be incorporated over a period of time through various installation steps during scheduled downtime.

The modification will add two of each of the following main components to your aircraft:

  • TSO-C-146c GPS/SBAS receivers
  • LPV Level of Service (LOS) annunciators
  • LPV fault indicators
  • ILS/LPV push button switches
