In its latest round of proposals to cancel instrument approaches, the FAA extended its scope from slashing NDB approaches at airports that also had RNAV approaches to also include cutting VOR and GPS approaches, according to a report at AOPA.org.
Of the 154 approaches that the FAA is considering canceling, 64 are VOR approaches and 19 are circling GPS approaches.
According to the story:
“AOPA is reviewing each approach to ensure that the FAA doesn’t cancel an approach that would negatively impact IFR access to the airport or result in higher weather minimums,” said Rob Hackman, AOPA senior director of regulatory affairs. “But we also need pilots to let us know how these approach cancelations would affect their flying. Local knowledge is critical in this process.”
