EBACE 2018 meeting

Monday, June 11, 2018

The European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE), the annual meeting for the European business aviation community took place in Geneva from 29 to 31st May. This is an opportunity for professionals from Europe and around the world to exchange knowledge and best practices in the sector.

EGNOS was present once again at this event and the colleagues from ESSP and GSA promoted its use among the business aviation stakeholders. It was great to discover how EGNOS is becoming more popular and awareness is increasing year by year. Attendees were able to go into detail about EGNOS benefits, learning how it is key to ensuring the industry’s access to airports.

Gian Gherardo Calini, the Head of Market Development in the European GNSS Agency (GSA) jointly with the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU) and airport operators participated in a conference about Air Traffic Management, “How to Ease Your Flight Operations with New Technologies?”. The session was focused on discussions about the future ATM technologies and GSA took the opportunity to report on EGNOS status in LPV approaches and ADS-B out, showcasing the benefits in safety and efficiency in aviation operations.
