Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV)

Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) enables the flight crew to fly an approach similar to ILS CAT 1 minima without the use of ground based landing aids. LPV approach makes use of a Space Based Augmentation System, (SBAS) which is available in several regions of the world like for example WAAS (USA) and EGNOS (Europe). From December 2020 all instrument runway ends with a Non Precision Approach (NPA) in Europe should have an approach based on LNAV/VNAV or LPV.

LPV approaches widely used in Europe and USA. Further development ongoing.

LPV capability has many benefits like independency from ground based landing aids, decision minima down to 200ft, less flight delays/cancellations and many more. Fokker Services’ LPV concept requires the installation of two dedicated SBAS receivers, no change to the existing avionics architecture.
