New EGNOS-based approach procedures in the Exeter and Devon Airports.
ESSP and EDAL (Exeter and Devon Airport Limited) have just signed an EGNOS Working Agreement (EWA) as a key step for the first implementation of EGNOS-based approach procedures (LPV procedures) in the Exeter and Devon Airports.
The signature has been sealed last March by ESSP President Dirk Werquin and EDAL‘s Operations Director Stephen Wilshire. From now on, EDAL can start publishing EGNOS-based procedures that will improve safety, accessibility and efficiency to pilots and operators in these UK airports.
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!.
