Continued issues at this airport because neither the airport or Nav Canada will pay to install ILS approaches to all runways!! The airport would rather build shopping/parking while Nav Canada continues to hide behind "data" that there is not enough weather to demand it......Yet when the weather gets bad there are incidents....Nav Canada needs to be held to their original agreements with getting a monopoly on our ATC.

LOC/NDB only for runway 05 if I remember right? ILS for 14 & 32. Next time at coffee ask the question: if the wind is from the North at 15G23 and we use a LOC app to 05.........what is my projected rate of descent and timing to the MAP if the FAF is 4.6 DME from the threshold? OR let’s fly the ILS ‘cause we can get it stopped with this tailwind...can’t we? Sorry, bored today!

You take RWY 5 and easily slow to the far end taxiway straight to the gate.

Assuming they wanted to fly a non- precision approach?
