SAGAN on the sky (28.08.2017)

Peter Sagan will be the latest star on the air sky. The navigation point is named after a successful cyclist and "via Sagan" will fly everybody who will land at the Airport Žilina. The pilot asks for an arrival line from the air traffic controller, which ends at SAGAN. So the word SAGAN will be used at each tower-plane communication. From this point, the aircraft crew will either begin the approach procedure that ends in the landing or wait for further instructions from the tower. Point SAGAN is located exactly 20.4 km (11 nautical miles) in front of the runway
