The EU-funded Accepta project, aimed at accelerating EGNOS adoption in the aviation sector, will hold a user forum on Thursday, 30 June 2011 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

The Accepta User Forum is being organised by the project team, led by INECO, with the support of the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Eurocontrol.

Accepta ('Accelerating EGNOS adoption in Aviation') is particularly interested in achieving the wide implementation of EGNOS-enabled LPV approaches to European airports, where the SBAS signal is available and certified. It is also promoting and supporting the adoption of necessary EGNOS-ready avionics for commercial airlines, general aviation and other end users.

The User Forum will include wide-ranging discussions on air navigation service provision, LPV approach procedures, the results of flight trials carried out by the EU-funded GIANT and GIANT-2 projects, and the recent launch of the EGNOS Safety- of-Life Service.

A registration form will soon be available on the Accepta website. The number of participants will be limited.
