Honduras Needs to Replace Aircraft Communication Equipment

The Civil Aviation Authority in Honduras has requested the allocation of $20 million to upgrade its air communications equipment.

Monday, November 4, 2013

The request came after some aviation companies complained of continuing air traffic incidents due to poor navigation systems.

The proposal was presented to President Porfirio Lobo by Raquel Adolfo Quan, Minister of Public Works and Manuel Enrique Caceres, chief of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). "It's an investment of about $20 million which includes the National Weather Service, which is also becoming degraded, and is an ambitious one, said Caceres.

He added that the acquisition of such systems could be incorporated into the budget of the Ministry of Public Works, Transport and Housing (Soptravi) of 2014.
