Croatia Airlines will use EGNOS for LPV approaches

 

On 1st November 2017 Croatia Airlines started with a project aimed at upgrading DASH Q400 fleet for LPV capability. The project named “Croatia Airlines Joining EGNOS Family” and co-financed by the European Union's Connecting Europe Facility is planned to be finished by the end of 2019.

The goal of the project is to upgrade six turboprop regional DASH Q400 aircraft with equipment capable of using the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS) and GALILEO satellite network. 

The first stage of the project was successfully completed in May 2018, with the implementation of the new EGNOS capable navigation equipment in 2  aircraft.

Operative flight tests of the new capabilities showed positive results, confirming that flight crews in future will be able to form adequate flight procedures for safely conducting RNP approaches up to LPV minima. 



 Daily operation of Croatia Airlines is based on airports already active in RNP approach implementation, including LPV approaches, and the company intends to follow this modern global navigational trend. 

After completing the project in 2019, we will establish a more robust and safer operation for our customers, while becoming a more efficient and eco-friendly airline on the European sky at the same time.
