First LPV Procedure for Billy Bishop Airport

First LPV Procedure for Rwy 08 at Billy Bishop Toronto City Centre Airport

Billy Bishop Toronto City AirportCreating an approach to Runway 08 at Toronto’s Billy Bishop airport is difficult. The runway environment makes a traditional ILS installation impossible and the proximity of tall buildings along the waterfront limits many options. Using Final Approach®, Air Navigation Data was able to create an LPV procedure for Porter Airlines that is the first to be compliant with Transport Canada’s new criteria (TP308, Change 5.3). The minimums for the procedure of 250 feet height above touchdown are the best possible, given the absence of approach lighting, precluded by marine navigation zones. This procedure has been submitted and it is expected to be published soon.
