GPS / GNSS

ASAP s.r.o. has developed and fully documented 22 GNSS non-precision approaches at 10 airports throughout Nigeria. Four airports (i.e. 10 approaches) have been fully flight checked with no anomalies found. The same successful situation occurred with the two GNSS approaches designed by ASAP s.r.o. in the United Kingdom.

The introduction of any new procedure changes the airspace arrangements currently employed. It is essential that an assessment of the impact to the current operation (from both a safety and interoperability viewpoint) is taken. The U.K. has yet to formally introduce GNSS NPA procedures, but as part of the regulatory process and to ensure that the appropriate flight inspection capability was available when use of GNSS NPA is authorised, It was necessary for such procedures to be developed. Working closely with the premier flight inspection company - Flight Precision Ltd (FPL) – ASAP s.r.o. was engaged to produce two GNSS NPA procedures at Teesside International Airport. The procedures were fully integrated into the current airspace arrangements and were supported by a full safety case and developed SOPs. Subsequently, we have participated in the discussions on the U.K. aircraft certification process, aircrew and ATC staff training, procedure implementation and notification.
