    One of the most challenging portions (IMO) of the arrival is trying to fly 1/2 mile in trail with dissimilar aircraft, particularly if you're behind something slow like a Cub. The folks at Fisk do an awesome job of creating two streams of better spaced aircraft that have a little more parity in performance.

    Regarding slam dunking 18 traffic over 27 traffic, that would create a more dangerous situation, and would require very precise altitude control to make sure someone on the approach to 18 wasn't 200' low concurrent with someone on the 27 approach being 200' too high, and causing a midair. Remember, these are the same pilots who <apparently> can't follow the NOTAM well enough to turn base for 18 at or before the tower or blue dot. Now we're gonna ask them to hold precise altitudes.

    One fact in the discussion - measured on Google Earth, it is 3,750' from the tower to the centerline of 27. From the blue dot to the C/L of 27 is 3,700'. That's roughly 3/4 mile of separation between the 27 and 18 arrival streams if people follow the NOTAM.

    That seems like plenty of room to use the page 11 Rnwy 27 flyover to 18. It ain't that hard, you just don't pull your throttle back till you have overflown 27.

    i frankly would rather use the page 11 approach to Rwy 18 than the downwind to 18...particularly if the are going to use both 18 R and 18 L. Watch this video of a downwind to 18.
