Transaero Selects CMC LPV Landing Systems
Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) has been selected by Transaero Airlines to equip 23 B737s with dual Localizer Precision with Vertical (LPV) landing systems. These systems include CMC’s CMA-5024 IntegriFlight GPS landing system sensor, and the CMA-5025 LPV landing system control panel.
Installation of the CMA-5024 and CMA-5025 will provide CAT-l equivalent LPV landing capability through CMC’s Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) GPS sensors. The GPS sensors enable Precision Area Navigation (P-RNAV) capability and GPS approaches. As a result of its certification for operation with the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), the CMA-5024 provides positioning data with the highest levels of integrity and availability.
The CMA-5024 has been certified by the FAA and Transport Canada to TSO-C145c Beta-3, and TSO-146c Delta-4.
