New EGNOS-based approach procedures in Poland.
ESSP and the Polish ANSP PANSA have just signed an EGNOS Working Agreement (EWA) as a key step for the implementation of EGNOS-based operations (mainly LPV approach procedures) in Poland.
The signature has been sealed last February by ESSP President Dirk Werquin and PANSA ‘s President Krzysztof Banaszek. From now on, Polish airports can start publishing EGNOS-based procedures that will improve safety, accessibility and efficiency to pilots and operators.
EGNOS provides a cost effective alternative to ILS CAT I, offering similar performance without the need for infrastructure installation and maintenance, and it is free!.
