FAUT VOR approaches 14/32

Unread post by 3greensfullflap » Thu Apr 21, 2016 2:24 pm

Good day,

Can anyone confirm the status of the VOR approaches into FAUT. ATC advised me during descent that only GNSS approaches were available and that the VOR procedure "isn't aligned with the new runway".

Any ideas?

That is very interesting. The published procedures do differ with the published runway headings by 4 and 7 degrees but a non-precision approach does not need to be aligned with the runway, in SA that is one of the critera that classifies an approach as a cloud break procedure. Was there no additional reasons given to the VOR approach being unusable? Couldn't find any NOTAMS either on it...
