Or if they do go by bush in PNG, then it's been taken over by helicopters nowadays that don't have so many minima requirements

Then track 5nm out to sea where I could safely descend through cloud, to become visual at 800' and track round the coast to approach the Field from the east!
You sure about that? Although my memory is unreliable I don't recall any sea in the immediate vicinity to the east of AYPY. Lots of terrain though.

Helifix web site shows the Turbine DC3 is still a future project. That will keep the lads busy with bush skills.

If I was CASA chief, all f/w companies would require a C-185 for all new comers to the cut their teeth on first! (dreaming)

when I was stuck over a solid overcast headed back to Moresby from the 'Jungles' and had to to a DME homing which enabled me to fly directly overhead the aid.
Then track 5nm out to sea where I could safely descend through cloud, to become visual at 800' and track round the coast to approach the Field from the east!
Note I said headed back from the '*Jungles' chimbu warrior. Specifically Kagi, which was somewhere about 045 degrees from Moresby. So flying back to Moresby was a SW track which took you straight out to sea once past Jackson Field. But then follow the coast around and approach from the South. Not the East; My mistake.

* The description 'The Jungles' was a Douglas Airways Pilots term for the Naoro, Manari, Efogi, Manumu, Bodinumu and Kagi airstrips. They were all within a few minutes flight time of each other, some actually being in the circuit area of another.
