Airbus ProSky partners with Chinese authorities to improve airport operations

10 September 2013 News in brief

The Airbus ProSky subsidiary is to work with China’s Air Traffic Management Bureau (ATMB) in implementing RNP AR-to-ILS transition approaches for commercial aircraft at Chengdu Airport, with the goal of improving overall airport capacity. This capability will enable aircraft to perform satellite-based Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required (RNP AR) approaches into the airport, then seamlessly transfer to ground-based precision Instrument Landing System (ILS) mode when aligned on the runway axis.
