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

Fokker Services' standalone solution for LPV 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

Calculate Your Savings

The ESSP (European Satellite Service Provider) under contract by GSA (European GNSS Agency) has created an innovative portal, the EGNOS User Support website, devoted to sharing information on the service. In particular, a map with EGNOS LPV procedures and operators, and user-oriented EGNOS Business Case Tools (EBCAST) are available. These customizable tools are designed to support operators and airports of any size in their own decision-making, providing a free preliminary cost-savings overview and potential CO2 emissions reduction when adopting LPV solutions for use within the EGNOS service area.
