GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - May 20, 2017 – During the 2017 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE), Universal Avionics is showing operators just how easy it is to save on flight hours, fuel, and engine reserves when equipped for Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV). The company is featuring an “LPV Payback Calculator” in booth Y66 throughout the show so attendees can calculate the payback period of a Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) upgrade for their aircraft.

According to Robert Clare, Director of Sales for Universal Avionics, “LPV capability for both rotorcraft and fixed wing aircraft is one of the future navigation concepts that is fully embraced by Europe’s SESAR. Universal’s SBAS-Flight Management Systems (FMS) support LPV approaches enabled by the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), which offers significant benefits over conventional Non-Precision Approaches (NPA). In addition to the ROI benefits, LPV approaches greatly increase both operational safety and airport/runway accessibility, while also reducing pilot workload.”

Universal Avionics SBAS-FMS is available in four models for installation flexibility and is certified on over 50 aircraft types, making it one of the most diverse options available on the market today. To learn more, be sure to visit Universal Avionics’ booth at EBACE to speak with an SBAS/LPV expert. Operators that won’t be in attendance during the convention can visit to access Universal’s LPV Payback Calculator.
