From Work permit policy Saba eased for high paid vacancies - Update Dec 4on
its a start!
From Invitation to Central Committee meeting on Wednesday December 19thon
Why is there no link to agenda points 3 and 5?
From Beautification initiative to prepare for Saba Day, tourist seasonon
Just a thought…. Some of the trails are in poor condition. Tourists want to hike but if they go on some of the lesser trails they will be met with difficult hiking. Tara’s Ground, Bud’s Mountain to name two… the steps to Crispeen overgrown and with rockslides.
From Saba: insufficient money for necessary maintenanceon
That is why on Saba the road tax, that is very low, should get higher.
From Greenhouses to be constructed at schoolson
Years ago there was a hydroponic garden.
From PCN requests a "Proof of life Declaration" (ADV)on
When at last will that be automized just like it happens in the Netherlands?!
From Seven out of ten Saba residents identify traffic nuisanceson
There is a dangerous speeding problem on The Road. Traffic cameras should be installed and speeders ticketed. Otherwise it’s only a matter of time before someone gets killed.
From Windward Islands will not have coastal radar system before 2021on
The persons living on Saba should note that because the Coast Guard is trying to detect boats and ships, the best location for such a radar is on top of the Cable and Wireless tower on Mount Scenery.
From Material transport for renovation runway to finalize sooner than anticipatedon
I am glad to hear about the runway resurfacing with concrete. I hope they do install Centerline lighting.
Centerline lighting reduces the required decision hight by the pilot from 2600 feet to 200 feet under a basic CAT 1 system.
Note: Saba can not go above CAT 1 to the more advanced CAT 2 or CAT 3 , because CAT 2 and CAT 3 are currently only Instrument Landing System technology.
Saba must use a Transponder Landing System CAT 1, which is used primarily by the military and small airports.
The pilot landing the plane can not tell any difference between ILS and TLS, he/she only sees that the runway landing system is CAT 1.
Centerline is nice to have, even if no future airport navigation improvements or upgrades are planned.
