Frankfurt (dpa / lhe) – So that the planes can continue to land at Frankfurt Airport without hesitation, the German Air Traffic Control (DFS) is checking the instrument landing system necessary for safe landings. From September 30th to probably October 3rd, the precision of leading signals will be measured with a special measuring aircraft, as the DFS announced on Wednesday.
The signals are important to support the pilot with navigation during the approach. The southern runway at Frankfurt Airport is examined during the survey. If the weather does not play along with the measurement or the technology goes on strike, the check will be continued on an alternative date between October 29 and 31, the company said.
When measuring, attempts are made to avoid flying over towns. According to the DFS, the instrument landing system must be checked at regular intervals.
