FAA Proposes List of Approaches to Be Removed T

On April 13, 2015, the FAA issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that contains a list of 736 redundant or underutilized VOR and NDB standard instrument approach procedures that have been identified for cancellation. The complexity and cost to the FAA of maintaining the ground based equipment for these approaches while expanding the new area navigation (RNAV) capability is not sustainable. To view the list of approaches slated for elimination, go to www.faa.gov/air_traffic/flight_info/aeronav/procedures/reports/ or go to the Federal Register notice. Comments may be submitted on or before May 28, 2015.
