Hello BT,
Probably not a big deal, but noticed a misalignment between ERC L6 and chart on page 147.
Latest ERC L6 May-2020 does not have W145, route Telfer-Marble Bar.
Photo attached.
Cheers

Here is another one, or I could be missing something..

Page 156, YTNG does have AWIS and METAR both published in DAP and TAF, yet shaded alternate and book text doesn't subtract 100ft from 1556ft minima..

However, the next page 157, YGDI doesn't have AWIS nor METAR in DAP and TAF, yet the book suggest to use 1056ft instead 1156ft.

Please let me know where am I wrong? Thanks

Although ATIS and AWIS are approved sources for obtaining the actual QNH, they are not the only ones. An operator can obtain approval for his base to give the actual QNH via a company frequency. Also some aerodromes have AWIS available via mobile phone. In the case of mobile phones, you cannot use that method for flight planning because you cannot assume that you will have mobile coverage at the destination, but you can use the phone after you arrive to reduce the MDA by 100ft.

Thanks Stuart
I assumed "Assuming" was the catch.
All good :)

Hi Stuart
page 173, paragraph 1 at the bottom of page "... alternate minima 1087 and 4.4 for Brisbane only..."

DAP has new minima 1135.
