Question regarding YARM NDB approach

Hi Bob,

On P263 (book version 2016), you talked about YARM NDB approach without DME, that GNSS can be used to establish distances.
I don't understand then in this case, why the MDA would be 4210 (S-I NDB), not 4160 (S-I NDB/DME), if GNSS can replace DME for distance measurement.

Thanks.

G'day Zhezhi

Is the text in your book different to this excerpt ? as it clearly states that you can use the lower MDA

Hi Stuart,

Thanks for your reply.
Yes, my book is 2016 version and this portion was not updated.

I have another question though, in the book it says Final approach waypoint for GNSS arrivals is a Fly-over (page 274) but on all the RNAV arrival charts, the symbol is Fly-by with Maltese cross. Could you pls clarify this as well?
Thanks again

Yes the Final approach waypoint for GNSS arrivals is designated by a Maltese Cross and the suffix F

So is FAF a fly-over?
As per the legend, it looks like its fly-by, (without the circle around) but in the book u said its fly-over?
Thanks
