Maybe Singapore can consider the IGS system a la Kai Tak for Seletar?

No need for IGS, can use the RNP-AR instead. For those who can't use the RNP-AR, there is always the visual approach option.

 

Unfortunately, the problem with the ILS glideslope is real, considering that the glideslope height is 1000 ft for every nautical mile. At 5 nm (8 km) the height of the descending aircraft is only 1500 ft, not including the buffer zone. Too low for any future highrise development in Pasir Gudang.

Luckily we have a smart Transportation Minister, Kudos for saying no to SG!

In that report is mentioned that Izham is exploring options to re-establish flights between Subang and Singapore "be it to Seletar or Changi".

Could that hint to FY getting regional jets in order to circumvent the prop ban @ Changi ?

I understand regulations @ Subang would have to be changed as well ...

Maybe that would only be a last resort if all other talks with Singapore fail. :glare:

CAAM should have approved it and the longer term issues over height etc could have been discussed it over the coming months or years. 

 

Looks like the CAAM/govt has shot itself in the foot
