Airports without ILS that now have NextGen LPV Minima
Airports with ILS that now have LPV Minima
The FAA has invested millions of dollars to allow pilots new and better access to more than 1,500 airports. We've upgraded the infrastructure at airports that already have ILS procedures in place. And we have installed new infrastructure at airports that had no instrument access at all. Now, we need you to upgrade to satellite systems so we can ensure the continued safety of our National Airspace.

See a simulated LPV approach at your local airport and witness actual approaches for more than 1600 airports across the country.
"It may have saved my life that day."
Tom Haines, pilot, on ADS-B and a near collision
Pilots wanted a better angle of attack indicator. We wanted to make sure all planes are equipped with the best new equipment to ensure the safety of our skies. That's why we simplified design approval requirements for angle of attack indicators - we want you to have the safest cockpit you can, and this step will make that happen.
634 We've installed ADS-B infrastructure all over the country to provide pilots an unprecedented level of access and safety. There are 634 new ground stations for your enjoyment and safety. Are you equipped?
Why wait until 2020? ADS-B installation brings free weather service to help you stay ahead of the storm no matter where you fly. A safer cockpit means safer skies.

Get closer to your favorite airport with new LPV approaches. With new approaches allowing access under less-than-ideal visual conditions, pilots are one-and-a-half miles closer to the airport using LPV routes.
