Application and guidance information associated with Localiser Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) Approach Operations
LPV operations are GNSS-based, flown using chart procedures titled RNAV(GNSS) and cover minima labelled LPV. This type of approach operation requires aircraft fitted with WAAS/EGNOS-enabled GNSS systems which use the GNSS signal to provide the vertical guidance
Any EASA AOC operator wishing to carry out such approach operations must hold an approval issued by the state of aircraft registry. Private operators do not currently require a formal approval.
Applicants wishing LPV Approach Approval are requested to contact the Flight Operations Policy Department. At present, no charge is made for LPV Approach Approval for AOC Holders. Applicants should also inform their assigned Flight Operations Inspector.
No approval required.
