Guam - Ground was broken today on a $5.7 million project at the Guam International Airport Authority, which will improve aviation safety. The new instrument landing system will provide pilots with electronic guidance to touch down on a runway.
GIAA board of directors chairman Mike Ysrael said, "So the ILS is not only important for the island of Guam and to the airport, but we're also contributing to the safety and reliability of the federal system and this is what we mean by partnership in all directions."
The new instrument landing system project will hopefully serve as a test pilot for more advanced systems and is expected to be completed in February of next year.
