[Annual Workshop] EGNOS in aviation: strategy and implementation status
Katerina Strelcova, from GSA, and José María Lorenzo, from ESSP, presented in the Annual EGNOS workshop the main achievements and benefits of EGNOS Services for the aviation community, including commercial operations, general aviation, rotorcraft operators and drone operations, amongst others. Along that line, the work done to enable EGNOS operations for general aviation in non-ATS environments is expected to be published as EASA Safety Promotion Material in 2019. On the other hand, an overview of the pioneer, current and new EGNOS capable operators was also given, highlighting that there are currently more than 60 operators flying with EGNOS in Europe. Exponential growth is expected in this area, with the new EGNOS solutions due to retrofit and forward fit coming to the market. Finally, the EGNOS Service Provision Scheme was explained, including services for non-EU States. Presentation available in this link.
