Flight Operations with the B767-300F additions will include the certification for Category II and Category III operations
along with qualifications for Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards (ETOPS).
"Indra is working proactively to get GBAS GAST D approved for Category III operations
. After ICAO requirements for GAST D became effective in November 2018, we are confident an approval is realistic", comments Linda Lavik.
Also, because of the dense fog, Category III operations
could not be carried out from 2.17 am to 10.29 pm.
The switch to full Category III operations
took place Dec.
In the future, as GLS ground stations become available worldwide, the system will be able to support Category III operations
, which allow aircraft to operate in very low or near zero visibility conditions.
