The Instrument Landing System at Guyana’s Cheddi Jagan International Airport is getting an upgrade.
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority has inked a contract with Canadian based company, IntelCan for the upgrade and installation of the Instrument Landing Systems at the main airport.
According to the Civil Aviation Authority, the Instrument Landing System is a precision approach aid employing two radio signals that provides a pilot with vertical and horizontal guidance during the landing phase of an aircraft.
The Authority said with the upgrade and extension of the runway at the Cheddi Jagan Airport, the acquisition of the new and modern equipment will enhance the landing capability of aircraft at the airport to alleviate the need for diversions in minimal weather conditions.
The new system is to be installed by February of next year and when that is done, it will also align the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority with more international standards as dictated by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.
