I've noticed (on StHelenaAirport.com) that the LF radio beacon (NDB) is no longer listed as one of the nav-aids at St Helena Airport. I wonder if it's been switched off or did it just fail and not...

Anyone got any idea what the range of fares means? Is it 804 for economy and 1,544 for business class? Or, perhaps, more likely, the lower fare if you book months in advance and the higher for...

The Deluxe Airport of St Helena

It's not just the terminal that's over the top. It's got every conceivable navaid (apart I think from a VDF) - it's like they said to the nav aid supplier - money no object - it's being paid for by...

Well, Sure Atlantic, the internet service provider on St Helena has possibly the worst website of any similar outfit I've seen. I can't find what they offer except "Bronze", "Silver", "Gold" and...

What are the options?

It's looking likely, as far as I can see, that the British Government will have to spend some significant amounts to get the St Helena Airport working as originally envisaged.

My guess is that the VOR will be rechecked with the relocated security fencing. Perhaps then there will be a VOR/DME approach for Runway 20, and possibly Runway 02 also.

Using Runway 02

Ok, so as we thought, SHG are going to try using Runway 02 with aircraft that can accept the tailwind.
