Webinar: “Available LPV solutions for aircraft: free online tool explained”
The ESSP has published in the EGNOS User Support Website a tool to support aviation users identifying available LPV solutions. We know that equipping an aircraft with an LPV solution is not a simple task, not just because of the logistic and monetary implications, but also because it is key to understand the solutions available in the market. This free online tool allows to identify which Supplemental Type Certificate -STC- and Service Bulletins -SB- solutions are available in the market to implement SBAS and LPV capabilities on eligible aircraft. If you are interested in aircraft solutions to have LPV capability, you cannot miss this webinar.
This webinar is organised by European Satellite Services Provider (ESSP) in collaboration with European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA), and will take place on the 6th of October. It aims at EGNOS users in civil aviation: ANSPs, Aircraft Operators, DOAs, avionics manufacturers… In general, all those actors interested in identifying aircraft that have the LPV capability on board as sorted from the manufacturing line, either as a Service Bulletin or by means of a Supplemental Type Certificate, can count today with a tool to assist them in such search process.
This online tool hosted in the EGNOS User Support Website also provides the information assigned to each specific aircraft model and is fed regularly on a best-effort basis with information gathered from a number of sources, including conversations with OEMs, DOAs, operators and avionics manufacturers among others. Also, since SBAS-based ADS-B solutions are also a possibility, users may look for this option at the same time they look for LPV solutions.
MAIN INFORMATION YOU CAN GET IN THIS WEBINAR:
- How to find which aircraft already have the LPV capability by Line fit or SB
- Which are the aircraft with LPV capability “Line fit or SB”
- How to find examples of aircraft that already have the LPV capability, as standard
- Which are the STCs solutions available
In summary, this tool allows users to find the solutions available in the market.
LPV capability on board aircraft is already a reality, as a standard capability like in the A220 family, as line-fit or Service Bulletin possibility or as a Supplemental Type Certificate.

The European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) is Europe's regional satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS). It is used to improve the performance of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), such as GPS and Galileo in the near future. It has been deployed to provide navigation services to aviation users over Europe, and it is also available for other transport and market segments such as maritime, rail, agriculture, geomatics and road.
EGNOS uses GNSS measurements taken by accurately located reference stations deployed across Europe. All measured GNSS errors are transferred to a central computing centre, where differential corrections and integrity messages are calculated. These calculations are then broadcast over the covered area using geostationary satellites.
As a result, EGNOS improves the accuracy and reliability of GNSS positioning information, while also providing an integrity message critical for Safety of life applications, as is the case in aviation.
