Satellite Navigation - GPS/WAAS Approaches

The availability of Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS)-capable approach procedures is a significant enabler of WAAS benefits in the United States. This page provides the latest status of these U.S. WAAS approach procedures.


What's new?

As of October 16, 2014, there are 3,450 Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) approach procedures serving 1695 airports.

Currently, there are also 560 Localizer Performance (LP) approach procedures in the U.S. serving 408 airports.
