 - May 16, 2012, 12:10 AM

EU-funded project Accepta is co-funding the publishing of Egnos (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System) landing procedures and/or installing its navigation equipment at 40 additional airports in 11 European countries by the end of 2013. The countries soon to get the system at their airports include Finland, France, Italy, UK, Austria and Spain. Egnos, Europe’s equivalent of Waas GPS, has many benefits including operational, economic (especially for business aviation), safety and environmental, said the company.

Operators already benefitting from Egnos include NetJets, the Dutch Flight Academy, Air Harters Europe, Martinair Flight Academy and NLR, the Dutch civil aviation authority.
