Courtesy of our friends at NBAA: This TFR consists of an inner 7 nm mile ring, which covers LGA and the Manhattan heliports. Helicopter operations will be permitted to the heliports utilizing gateway airport procedures at Farmingdale Republic Airport (FRG) and Linden Airport (LDJ). There is a 2 nm cut-out that will allow aircraft on an active flight plan, squawking a discrete transponder code, and communicating with ATC to access TEB. The outer ring of this TFR consists of the lateral confines of New York Class B airspace. GA flights are prohibited from this area except for those allowed into the 7 miles ring and IFR/VFR traffic to and from FRG and Westchester County Airport (HPN) – no other GA flights can transition the airspace.
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.
