"Why are we only concentrating on lower minima for the major airlines in capital cicties?"
1. Maybe because QANTAS can make money by paying squillions to NAVERUS to design special approaches that allow lower DA's and special departures that allow a lower TO minima, that only QANTAS can use, thereby gaining a REAL competitive advantage over their rivals by being able to arrive and depart more often in poor weather conditions or carry more pax and baggage because they know they won't have to divert, or can get out of the place more regularly.
2. Maybe because QANTAS has more political pull than your average charter company.
3. Because no-one else can afford to pay squillions to NAVERUS.
Its not just capital cities. Check the AIP SUPPS on the Air No Services website and you will find Broome, Port Hedland, Alice Springs, Cant-berra, (it might be the nations capital but you CAN'T get anything done there.)
And it is not for the major airlines, its only for QANTAS.....or any other airline willing to pay SQUILLIONS.
What was the name of the guy from CASA who pushed the RNP stuff through and then left and now works for NAVERUS?
