Raytheon Aircraft has received an STC from the European Aviation Safety Agency approving the Hawker 400XP (crewed by suitably qualified pilots) to fly the steep approach procedures required to operate at London City Airport. Hawker Aircraft Services can supply the mandatory pilot training, and Hawker Aircraft Service Center in Chester, England, can install an STC-required mod to the enhanced GPWS to prevent false alarms during the approach.
