ARINC 424 NDB Meeting in Zurich
It’s been an honor for us at Lufthansa Systems in Zurich to host the yearly ARINC 424 NDB Meeting. We have been engaged in this working group for over a decade, improving and evolving the industry standard ARINC 424 together. The goal is to propose changes that will facilitate the pilots work and ensure a safe flight. The proposed changes at the meeting will make the standard even more fit for the future. Just to mention one example, the PBN Navigation Specification applicable for a given terminal procedure can now be encoded in ARINC 424.
Characteristic for the ARINC 424 meeting is the very collaborative and solution-focused mindset in which experts from all over the industry work together. Participants are very engaged and the positive atmosphere prevails. This year’s meeting was no exception to that and the valuable relationships were strengthened. Naturally we added a special Swiss flavor to our evening event, when we had the pleasure to have fondue in the old city of Zurich, in a typical winter night – with snow, strong cheese smell and the beautiful view to the Limmat.
