Wednesday, November 20, 2019
Airbus Fleet Readiness review for A320/A330/A350/A380 SLS function

Mr. Mathieu Hiale-Guilhamou from Airbus, was the guest speaker to share in the Annual EGNOS workshop a few words on how EGNOS is entering the world of commercial airliners. Mr. Hiale-Guilhamou introduced the strategy followed by Airbus, from a cockpit perspective, to introduce LPV approaches in their aircraft through the “SLS (SBAS Landing System)” function. Then he offered the auditorium an outstanding video about SLS test flights conducted by Airbus in perhaps their best-selling platforms: the A320, A330 and A350. The accuracy and stability of the LPV guidance observed on board were superb, even enabling Airbus to test an auto landing SLS.

At the end, Airbus illustrated its commitment to EGNOS, as all of their product families will receive SLS capabilities between Q3 2020 and Q4 2021.
