Better air navigation in Hungary

Hungarian PBM

The project supported the implementation of Performance Based Navigation (PBN) procedures with vertical guidance in 7 public airports (Gyor/Per, Heviz/Balaton, Debrecen, Pecs, Szeged, Nyiregyhaza and Bekescsaba) and 3 military ones (Papa, Kecskemet, Szolnok).

As a result of this Action, 100% of public airports in Hungary are now compliant with PBN requirements. By enabling PBN approaches, Hungary will have provided the opportunity for all airspace users to land by utilising Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology throughout Hungary. 

These procedures make air transport significantly more flexible, and more environmentally friendly. At the same time, they simplify the landing of aircraft since this can now be done using satellites and their pinpoint precision in location.

PBN provides a cost-effective solution to be able to manage air traffic even in smaller airports, thus reducing the burden on controllers and pilots alike and making the entire procedure of taking off and landing much more efficient.
