Installation and Operational Approval & Business Case II Workshop

The SHERPA consortium is pleased to announce that the fourth SHERPA project Workshop will take place in Gliwice (Poland) on the 30th and 31st January 2013. This fourth workshop will be held at the SUT (Silesian University of Technology) premises.

The main goal of this Workshop is to to provide guidance to all the attendees regarding the processes for aircraft airworthiness and installation certification with SBAS capabilities. In addition, it will be presented the operational approval for APV and a methodology for developing cost benefit analyses upon implementation of EGNOS APV procedures in an airport.

Apart from these topics, LPV simulations at SUT Virtual Flight Laboratory will be also presented to the attendees having then the opportunity to fly simulated LPVs.

The main topics to present will be:

  • Regulatory framework after the creation of EASA, focussing on AMC documents for RNP APCH certification;
  • EASA´s certification processes;
  • Equipment qualification and aircraft installations processes;
  • AMC syllabus;
  • Business Case model;
  • Airport cost benefit analysis upon implementation of EGNOS APV procedures;

Finally, SHERPA participating States will also have the opportunity to present to the rest of the SHERPA consortium the development of the work conducted at all of their national scenarios.


SHERPA is a collaborative project funded by the European Commission 7th Framework Programme through the European GNSS Agency (GSA), that proposes, aligned with ICAO and Eurocontrol recommendations, an approach in support to the implementation of APV procedures, by undertaking pre-operational actions at local Stakeholders level in a coordinated manner, and to map the implementation of EGNOS into the States PBN strategy.
