LPV approval is a GPS-based non-precision approach with a similar minima to a Cat 1 ILS approach.

To carry LPV approval the aircraft must be equipped with a WAAS GPS system approved to FAA/EASA E/TSO C146. Many aircraft already have a compatible Garmin GPS.

We have produced an EASA Part 23 multi-model (AML) STC for the Garmin GNS430W/530W series permitting LPV and PRNAV capability.

* Our STC includes updating a non-WAAS unit to the later WAAS variant, so you don’t need to start from scratch if you have the older version installed. Upgrading an early GNS unit to WAAS also removes the problems of the first generation 28V versions for which support was withdrawn a few years ago.
