GPS Disruptions at Two Airports Pose Flight Safety Risks

Flight safety in Karachi and Lahore has been compromised due to GPS disruptions, ARY News reported on Monday.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) confirmed that flight captains in these regions have reported issues with GPS signal interruptions. In response, the CAA has directed pilots to immediately inform Air Traffic Control (ATC) if they encounter GPS signal issues.

GPS is essential for modern aviation, allowing pilots to navigate along specific routes using geolocation and time data provided by satellite-based radio navigation. These signal disruptions have made landings and takeoffs more challenging, with pilots experiencing sudden losses of critical navigational information.

Recently, two international flights approaching Sialkot Airport reported GPS signal problems but managed to land safely with guidance from air traffic controllers. This ongoing issue presents a serious threat to aviation safety and underscores the urgent need for a resolution to prevent potential accidents and ensure passenger safety.
