Seeing through the fog: Wagga Wagga Airport, Australia. (Audio Interview)

Wagga Wagga Airport launched their newest gadget today.

The Instrument Landing System (ILS) will help pilots and ground staff navigate landings in bad weather or fog where they have otherwise been unable to land.

The ILS will mean a greater reliability can be placed on the flights coming in and going out of Wagga meaning that less flights are likely to be cancelled or postponed.

It will also be a valuable training tool for pilots in the region as they no longer have to travel to Canberra to practice landing using the ILS system.

Chris caught up with Rob Walker who is the Manager of Corporate Communications at Airservices Australia to find out more about the ILS and how it will benefit the Riverina.
