About the Airport: Kai Tak airport was, until it’s closure in 1998, was the main airport of Hong Kong, China. Because of the extremely dangerous approach, as well as a request by multiple airlines for an airport with a higher capacity, the airport was closed, with the last departing flight being Cathay Pacific CX3340. It was a ferry flight to the new Hong Kong International Airport (Airbus A340-300) and it took off from Runway 13 at 01:05.

Can you make it training so I can go? If you can I’ll take the qantas 747 to YSSY

Maybe, but you should try to get to grade 3! What are you missing and I can help you easily!

Landings and time.

For landings, I recommend flying around EHAM, and for time, just do some overnights!

I wish I could join, but unfortunately it can’t fit into my busy weekend schedule. Huge props to you for showing some love for Hong Kong though :)

Thank you, make sure to check our other flyouts too!

i’ll fly to singapore on the DC! huge thanks for featuring Kai Tak.

Is it possible for me to do a flight to WSSS on the DC as well becase it is one of the routes in my VA

Is there any route that is only 3-4 hours long?

Hi I’ll be taking Gate 2 to EDDF in the Lufthansa 744. Callsign is LH797.

I will take this route

Wouldn’t it be great to have a flyin event at Kai Tak?

I’m shure everybody would crash on the hard approach

Let’s do it on Casual then, I think it would be a lot of fun. ☺️
