The DLR Pilot Assistance System LNAS
In a joint project, the Low Noise Augmentation System LNAS was further developed for the so-called Continuous Descent Approach (CDA). This system supports pilots via display to perform quieter and more economical approaches. Noise emissions and fuel consumption are measurably reduced.The video shows two real approaches of the overall 70 valid flights with and without LNAS, which were performed by the DLR research aircraft ATRA during a test week in September 2019. The project consortium consists of the Swiss SkyLab Foundation, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Empa. The project was financed by the Federal Office of Civil Aviation, the Canton of Zurich, the Federal Office for the Environment and by the project partners' own funds.
