Federal Aviation Administration / Flight Standards District Office; Teterboro, New JerseyAircraft struck unoccupied Global 5000 (N503VJ) while taxiing to the ramp.
TUG is scheduled to review with the FAA recent operator and controller feedback regarding this procedure. In the meantime, please click on the following link to see AIN’s article: https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/business-aviation/2021-06-24/teb-begin-runway-offset-arrivals-july
Note that NY TRACON has advised that the RNAV (GPS) Y Rwy 19 approach while on a southerly flow will be the preferred approach; however, the RNAV (GPS) X Rwy 19 Offset Approach will be made available upon pilot request.
Operators are advised that the newly published RNAV (GPS) X Rwy 19 approach is unique and offers some interesting characteristics that warrant thorough prior briefing: 13 degree offset final, LP and LNAV minima, relatively high MDA and visibility minima, a Visual Descent Point (VDP), and close proximity to the WABC-AM antenna tower.
For an in-depth analysis of this procedure, along with suggestions for best practices, please visit our Operations > Airspace & Procedures page: https://teterborousersgroup.org/operations/airspace/
TUG would be interested in hearing any feedback from operators that request and fly this approach.
