  • The EGNOS Safety of Life (SoL) service

  • Current EASA mandates
  • Existing European support programmes
  • First-hand accounts from recent LPV implementations in Croatia and Belgium

In addition to the conference, the GSA invites you to a special welcome drink and award ceremony on 8 March at 12:30 at the EGNOS booth (stand 242). The event will recognise the EWA signatures and LPV procedures published in 2015.
