On behalf of its client Pacific Coastal Airlines, Direct Approach recently completed a regulatory review and flight check of the RNAV (GNSS) RWY 13 restricted approach into Bella Bella, BC.
All instrument flight procedures must by regulation undergo a complete design review and be re-flight checked every four years.
Through the use of an exemption permitting a steeper than standard missed approach climb gradient, the restricted approach into Bella Bella provides a significantly lower approach than the RNAV (GNSS) A, which is the Canada Air Pilot version. This provides a significant operational advantage for Pacific Coastal, as well as all other authorized uses, and therefore benefits the local community through more reliable air service to this remote coastal community.
Direct Approach congratulates Pacific Coastal Airlines for their dedication to providing safe and reliable air services to this community.
