Pilots landing at the Emerald Airport will soon be able to make their approach with improved ease.
The existing Precision Approach Path Indicators (PAPI) equipment, now more than a decade old, was replaced with new infrastructure this week.
The $55 000 project was funded by the Central Highlands Regional Council airport reserves and took 4 days to complete.
Manager Airport David Voss said the upgrades would ensure pilots continue to accurately measure and maintain the correct vertical approach.
‘Council is committed to providing a high level of safety compliance at our airports, adhering to all civil aviation safety regulations and standards,’ he said.
‘This new equipment will serve our airport well into the future.’
