Brazilian airline to use GPS Landing System

Brazilian airline GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA announced on Tuesday that from January 2010 its aircraft will be equipped with sensors to allow the use of the GPS Landing System, a landing and takeoff system and Vertical Situational Display, a tool for determining the aircraft's position in relation to the ground.

The GPS Landing System allows the plotting of curved segments in a single procedure, with increased accuracy and safety, enabling continuous ascent or descent.

Vertical Situation Display enables pilots to accurately identify information on ground relief and obstacles from the cockpit, by providing an additional tool for monitoring the position of the aircraft in relation to the ground.
