As an aside- I heard a rumour that you could at one stage use the FAOR ILS at some awful 'o dark thirty time(like 3 am or so) for training - flying down to decision point then executing missed approach and leaving. One would be then liable for nav and approach fees (but discounted I heard) but not landing and ground handling. Anyone know if this was correct and if it is still so? If it is still so anyone know how to set it up?

Thanks

I flew into FAOR down the ILS for a touch and go in 2009 at about 19h30B. Just filed the flight plan and reserved a slot. Be prepared for a hefty bill though.

Sat in the jump seat on many a Learjet 35 and Learjet 60 missed approach in the late 90's and early 00's at FAJS (now FAOR).
Owner did it every few months for currency.
All around 20:00

Never actually touched down as that would add a huge amount to the bill. Did those at Lanseria

You can try but don't waste your time or money. When training for my IF my instructor and I attempted it 3 times LATE at night. We even phoned the tower to make arrangements. Once airbourne and handed over by radar they repeatedly gave us the visual only... rather use FALA
