Bhopal airport to get a new landing system

Bhopal: Raja Bhoj airport will have a new instrument landing system (ILS) to ensure safe landing of approaching aircrafts. Airport authorities said that the new ILS will be functional by the end of this year — which has a life span of 12 years.
Process for replacing the old ILS has been started.
Officials however said it is not an upgrade of the existing ILS CAT 1, but only a replacement. Director Anil Vikram told TOI that the old ILS has completed its life span. “Each ILS has a particular time after which it is mandatory to change it. The process to replace it has been started,” director Vikram. The installation of the new ILS will be completed by the end of this year only.
“We are hoping to get the new ILS functional during the next winter. It depends on the technical aspects related to it,” said Vikram.
“As per the international guidelines new ILS will be installed. We are using the same version as the previous ILS,” said Vikram.
