I hope someone’s recording this event, it’ll be cool to watch! Just wanna share my thoughts about SBRJ:

  • That feeling when you finally spotted the tiny beach in the distance, where you’ll make that sharp turn? The beauty of that scenery - priceless!
  • I can confirm that this is one of the most hardest landing ever. I kid you not. I can handle PARO, I can handle KDCA, but I’ve always died on the shores of Rio!

I was way to fast and when I say way I mean WAY too fast. I think this is one of the only airports where I have to use parking brakes to slow down instead of the rudder brakes.

Well that wraps it up for this event, thanks so much for attending! It was fun to see you all landing, and sorry for not being able to be there for some of it. Be on the lookout for my next one, and also join my Frankfurt flyout if you haven’t yet!
