The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has recently issued new guidelines regarding complaints from airlines concerning GPS signal problems in the flight information regions of Karachi and Lahore. The CAA’s move comes in response to ongoing issues faced by aircraft in these regions, where the GPS signal has been experiencing disruptions.
According to the CAA, the problem with the aircraft GPS signal has been reported within a range of 100 nautical miles in the Lahore flight region. In light of this issue, the CAA has directed all pilots to immediately report any signal problems they encounter to Air Traffic Control.
This is not the first time such GPS signal problems have been reported in the region. A few months ago, a similar issue with the GPS signal of planes operating in the Karachi and Lahore flight regions was also observed, highlighting the recurring nature of the problem.
The CAA’s Guidelines: The issuance of these fresh guidelines by the CAA demonstrates their commitment to addressing the challenges faced by airlines due to GPS signal disruptions. By instructing pilots to report any signal problems promptly, the CAA aims to ensure enhanced safety and operational efficiency in the affected flight regions.
Airlines operating in the Karachi and Lahore flight regions are urged to remain vigilant and promptly report any GPS signal problems they encounter. The CAA’s guidelines serve as a reminder of the importance of maintaining effective communication with Air Traffic Control to mitigate potential risks associated with GPS signal disruptions.
