The Czech Republic, Finland and Austria join a growing list of pioneering countries offering operational EGNOS approach procedures

Since the 9th January 2014 advantages of EGNOS system can be used within Czech airspace. Approach procedures down to LPV minimums at Brno and Ostrava airports allow operators to benefit from accurate navigational signal, thanks to European satellite system EGNOS, which augments signal of GPS. Main advantages are not only lower approach minimums but also accuracy, stability and safety of approach with vertical guidance. Satellite navigation allows users to design and implement very accurate IFR approach procedure with low investments.
