Russian pilots report new GPS failure over Ukraine

MOSCOW, April 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s national air carrier Aeroflot pilots reported a new failure of GPS receivers over Ukraine last night.

“GPS was down last night (from April 29 to April 30),” said one of the pilots of a Moscow to Tel Aviv flight.

The Aeroflot press service has made no comments.

The first GPS failure reported to the Federal Agency for Air Transportation occurred on April 24 aboard an A321 aircraft en route from Istanbul to Moscow some 60 miles before Dnepropetrovsk. The GPS signal reappeared after crossing the Russian border.
