Support ad-Hoc to Eastern Region with Pre-operational Actions on GNSS

Updated: Aug 13, 2016

Why this project is important for EGNOS/GSA/SatNav?: 

SHERPA proposes a regional collaborative approach to support European Eastern countries as they move towards the implementation of GNSS enabled operations, and specifically those enhanced by EGNOS.

Background: 

Implementation of approach procedures with vertical guidance (APV) (Baro-VNAV and/or SBAS) for all instrument runway ends, either as the primary approach or as a back-up for precision approaches by 2016 with intermediate milestones as follows: 30 per cent by 2010, 70 per cent by 2014.

Objectives: 
  • To support Eastern and Central European countries through the set-up of regional working groups and workshops to understand the pre-operational actions to be undertaken by their relevant stakeholders (ANSPs, regulators and airlines) to support EGNOS adoption.
  • Map the implementation of EGNOS into the States' PBN strategy.
How does it work?: 

SHERPA represents an important asset in supporting the implementation of APV procedures in Europe, by contributing to a common strategy towards the implementation of EGNOS operations in the aviation community.

Results: 

Deliverables produced according to project schedule and Workshops successfully held.

Next Steps: 

Two workshops are to be organized, and some documents have yet to be prepared.
