Maybe they are worried people will get violations when doing the checkboard in case they do not manage to do it and end up crashing into the taxiway.

It is one of the hardest approaches in the world. Really if anything is slightly wrong with the approach, the best option is to immediately go around, since when the turn is completed there is only enough time for one or two minor adjust to line up with the runway before touchdown. So I’d recommend to anyone worried about violations on this approach is just practice it in solo. Here’s a thread on the approach that”s very helpful.

I agree, it is the reason they moved the airport here and turned it into a cruise terminal. Just a shame I cam after they closed it, wish I could have seen it!
