Libyan airports to get new VOR/DME navigation systems

Posted 13 June 2017 · Add Comment

Libya Telecom (LT) will shortly roll out the installation of new navigation systems combining VHF Omni Directional Radio (VOR) and Direction Measuring Equipment (DME) to improve air traffic management at four major airports. Oscar Nkala reports.

In a statement, company chairman Faisel Gergab said the programme would cover Mitiga, Benina, Tobruk and Labraq airports. Further, the company would train airports staff in the use and maintenance of the equipment.

He said LT would continue to develop the Libyan aviation sector by ensuring that all airports operate standard aircraft navigation systems.

VOR is a short-range radio navigation system that uses very high frequency (VHF) band to enable receiver-equipped aircraft to determine position and maintain course using radio signals transmitted by a network of fixed ground radio beacons.
