Preface

Why does the plan view of this approach plate indicate “GPS REQUIRED”?

1.

GPS equipage allows reduced ATC separation requirements, so itís required due to the high density of traffic in the area.

2.

All transitions from the en route structure used on the procedure require GPS.

3.

Itís part of the subtle encouragement to pursue ADS-B equipage sooner rather than later.

4.

The fixes used on the procedure require identification with higher precision than is provided by navaids.
