CETA, a design organization approved by EASA and MINISDEF, after different conversations with ESSP, the European provider of the EGNOS service, has committed to promote the use of the EGNOS service among Spanish operators and developing Supplementary Type Certificates (STC) of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and / or the Ministry of Defense (DGAM) on all types of aircraft, civil and / or military.
EGNOS-based LPV approaches allow :
Simplified approach procedures and greater safety, without the need for ground systems.
Lower minima for LPV approaches compared to LNAV approaches.
Better access to airports and runways that do not have ILS systems (and that have LPV approaches).
Considerably reduce the vertical and lateral safety margin with respect to obstacles.
RNP AR guidance on missed approaches.
Manage approaches and traffic more efficiently.
Reduce the environmental impact.
Increase flight, crew and passenger safety.
In Europe there are already more than 740 EGNOS-based approaches and it is anticipated that in 2024 there will be almost 900!
