Abstract : A Flight Standards evaluation of non-precision (VOR) approache was made to determine whether the final approach fix distance specified in TERPs can be increased without derogation of procedure flyability. Two published VOR procedures and two additional VOR procedures designed for evaluation purposes were flown under simulated instrument conditions for comparison of flyability problems on final approach distances of 3.5, 7.0, 10.5, and 18.5 NM.
