Gotcha! – Teterboro, NJ (KTEB)



When on the VOR DME-A, Circle 19 into Teterboro (KTEB) watch out for the minimums. While the circling minimums on the approach plate indicate 1000′, you might be surprised to find out that you will be instructed to remain at 1500′ by the tower.  This is usually to provide separation from helicopter traffic,  and can get you in trouble if you are not prepared for it.


The above is intended to be advisory in nature and does not supersede any information contained in the FAR’s or AIM.  Every situation is different and may not apply to every flight.
