GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - May 20, 2017 – Universal Avionics’ EGNOS experts are on hand during the 2017 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) to help guide operators through the 2017 CEF funding application process. Through this funding, operators can take advantage of available grant money for regional, commercial, business (corporate), general and rotorcraft aircraft to equip with EGNOS/SBAS technology.

“There’s considerable confusion and inherent nervousness amongst European operators regarding the available funding,” said Ross Dickey, Universal Avionics Airline and Government Sales Manager. “Many operators don’t have the opportunity to attend industry events, so they’re not getting this important funding information in front of them,” he added. “We can assist with this and coordinate with the appropriate authorities to complete their applications.”

Member European States and international organizations, joint undertakings, and public or private undertakings, or bodies established in an EU Member State are all eligible for the 2017 CEF funding. There are two deadlines for application submission; the first cut-off is 14 July 2017, and the second cut-off is 30 November 2017.

With increasing airspace congestion, EGNOS is becoming an extremely valuable technology for aircraft operators. Throughout Europe, there are already more than 440 EGNOS-based approaches at almost 220 airports, and that number is growing.

EBACE2017 attendees can visit Universal Avionics booth Y66 throughout the show to have their 2017 CEF funding questions answered and to take the first steps toward submitting their application.
