The project kick-off meeting took place on 7 November 2022 at Lleida-Alguaire airport. The importance of the SAMVA project was highlighted by the project coordinator, Josep Montolio, Aeronautical Engineer at PildoLabs, who stated that “this project will establish relevant milestones towards the nominal use of EGNOS-based operations for both rotorcraft and eVTOLs aircraft. These new procedures will offer all the EGNOS benefits to the different service operators and users, achieving a better positioning solution backed up by high precision, accuracy, and integrity”.
Through the operational developments proposed, and the engagement with key stakeholders, SAMVA will be a key milestone for the adoption of EGNOS technology in present and future rotorcraft and eVTOL operations
