For the record MTH has a GPS approach but, Over the last two years FCA
has refused to upgrade the avionics. Each aircraft has different avionics leading to differences in each aircraft and removes the common parts that would enable FCA
to maintain a parts inventory. Hence, Even with FCA
aware of the GPS approach and the limitations not having GPS in their aircraft you look for the feds to put big $$$ into an ILS which is not the next generation in technology.
FYI, I believe you will find GPS approaches available to most of the islands you fly to in the Bahamas as well.
I like FCA
but, your tone belies the whole truth. FCA
could have put in the Garmin 430s and saved the cost of installation and purchase against what they spent in one month last year on avionics for old king/bendix radios.
will realize that they need to spend money to make it and save it. Trying to keep 20-30 year old avionics going is a losing battle.
Even at Chalks who flies some of the oldest 121 aircraft in they have modern avionics and have new hyd. systems etc.
