Q. With reference to the Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV), consider the following statements;
1.It is a Satellite Based Procedure which has been used by aircraft for landing purposes.
2.LPV approaches make aircraft possible to land at airports not equipped with expensive Instrument Landing Systems.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

[A] 1 only

[B] 2 only

[C] .Both 1 and 2

[D] .Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: C
Notes:

Both the statements are correct.

It is a Satellite Based Procedure which has been used by aircraft for landing purposes.

LPV approaches make aircraft possible to land at airports not equipped with expensive Instrument Landing Systems. This includes many small regional and local airports.

LPV’s will lower the decision height up to 250 ft, this provides a substantial operational benefit in poor weather and low visibility conditions.

Thus, any airport which hitherto would require higher visibility minima, will be able to accept aircraft benefiting remote airports which are devoid of precision approach capability equipment.
