Hello flight sim geeks! So FDS has been doing Route of the Month, so I figured why not start an Airport of the Month series. I will traverse to many airports; mostly commercial airports, however every three months (February, May, August, November) will be a rural airport.
I will try to mostly feature airports that I’ve never seen anybody travel to yet. This is to broaden everybody’s flying palettes so we can all discover new airports anywhere from the peaks of Mexico to the deserts of the Middle East. Did I say Middle East?
Because December’s featured airport is King Hussein International Airport (ICAO “OJAQ”) Below is a pic of the airport.
Located in Aqaba, Jordan, the only coastal city in its country, King Hussein Airport sits on the southwestern corner of Jordan on the Gulf of Aqaba (fitting name).
WHY FLY OUT OF OJAQ?: This area of the globe has received minimal attention in the history of IF Global flyers. OJAQ is only a 20-30km GA hop from a scenic flight over the Gulf leading to the Red Sea, and sits in front of some small peaks. If GA flights aren’t your cup of tea, OJAQ is also a commercial airport. You can fly IRL flights to Moscow, Budapest, and Amman, or you can do the flight I’m gonna do tomorrow from OJAQ-DTTZ.
I look forwards to seeing your pics at OJAQ on the Best IF Photos topic page, no matter how few nor many. Please also let me know if you want this Airport of the Month thing to become a regular thing.
