The new Instrument Landing System (ILS) is up and running at Katowice Airport in Pyrzowice. The THALES 420 system is particularly beneficial in episodes of restricted visibility. It is a category I system, thus able to direct an aircraft from when it first comes into range, through to a decision height of 60m (200ft) parallel to the runway, with a runway visual range (RVR) of 800m (2400ft).
