Here is a link to the book that gives wonderful insight into the history of WA flying from DC3s to the introduction of jet operations into the Pilbara and beyond. Many interesting yarns and Iíve personally found the book very beneficial for the flying we do today. Itís available on ebook.

I think the thread has drifted somewhat. The type of approach is almost irrelevant and all that particular discussion does is take away from the real lessons here.

Edit: I am totally onboard with the idea that Australia is lagging behind the rest of the world, no argument there. It just didnít cause this incident as crews always have a choice even if itís an unpopular one.

AltFlieger, your frustration is misguided. Ive been designing these things for 16years and the only reason -AR approaches are not more common is because aircraft capability is not that common. 737/320 and soon Q400 are the only types approved capable. Others can be but operators choose not to.

What does this have to do the regulator?

Ok , I get that.
What was frustrating is that when the first -AR approaches were introduced they were a game changer. Then they went backwards to generic charts.
Melbourne RWY 34 was a good example. From a minima of 200í back to a GNSS approach simply because of ATC workload. Very frustrating.
