Welcome to the Carribean Hop and Saba Landing Competition!
These competitions are so much fun, and so we are back with another one. This time we are challenging you to show your landing skills Saba!
Saba is acknowledged as the smallest airport in the world, with a tiny runway. Come join to prove your piloting skills!
About the scenic route and diffic- impossible approach
For our third landing competition we have chosen no other than the legendary Saba airport.
Saba is a carribean island, that is just 13KM Squared, and is in the municipality of the Netherlands.
Saba airport is known as the smallest airport in the world, and has been featured on many websites and articles. The tricky bit isn’t the approach this time. It’s the runway.Saba has the shortest commercial runway in the world.
Saba airport has a runway that is 1,312 feet long (12/30). To put that in perspective, it is the same length as the South Dakota TV tower. And for planes, trust me, that is short.
The only plane that operates here is the Twin Otter, by Winair, Windward Express, Anguilla Air services and SXM Airways.
Quite surprisingly, Saba Airport averages around 30,000 passengers each year (Pre-COVID)!
We will be flying in from St Barths , AKA the king of difficult approaches. It’s gonna be a fun flight!
This route is operated by Winair.
At the end of this flight we will have a little fun landing competition. It’s a great challenge to test your piloting abilities! What we will be looking at is:
IF-O Screenshot - Optional
Make a successful landing at the airport.
Also please be kind to your passengers and go ask them if they are all alright.
We will be landing on Runway 30.
Yup, that’s it. As long as you land successfully, you are a great pilot anyways.
