Drones for ILS calibration flights

 

The instrument landing systems (ILS) at airports must be calibrated regularly. The use of drones with measuring instruments will reduce the current number of calibration flights by 50% from 2020 and by 70% from 2023. As a result, Skyguide will cut CO2 emissions by 142 tonnes and energy consumption by 541 MWh per year from 2020.
