Readback: October 2016
The minimum vectoring altitude near my home ’drome is about 3000 feet MSL because of our distance from the radar site. That’s higher than the 2000-foot crossing at the FAFs so we always get cleared for a full approach. However, our ADS-B reception is currently around 1000 feet MSL/700 AGL. After 2020, when the traffic picture is nearly full via ADS-B and closer to the ground, do you foresee MVAs being lowered in areas that have been limited primarily by poor radar coverage?
