I know, I know this question was asked a lot of times, but as you maybe know I started a video Series about hard approaches, and I just realized I don’t even know too many. So I wondered if you could maybe help me with finding some. I am aware of airports like Queenstown, Hong Kong, Innsbruck, Paro and those popular approaches. What I am looking for is an hard approach that isn’t known too much. It can be also/or a really stunning approach. I am glad about your suggestions. (I prefer airliner approaches) Thanks!
London Cities steep approach, and DCA is kind of hard, just follow the river it’s a lot of turning.
There’s Chorchevel in France (LFLJ)
Know those already… but thanks for helping
Yeah but I am more looking for airliner approaches
Aspen in Colorado (KASE) or Juneau in Alaska (PAJN) - approaches both surrounded by mountains
LGA freeway visual, JFK very short final 13L
Know this too, but will consider it. Thanks! I found Leh Airport in India, which is a type of airport that I am looking for: not too popular but scenic and hard
Kalispell (KGPI) has a kinda interesting approach for 20, not too difficult tho. A very nice scenic route is from Chicago with an American 738 :)
MHTG is a good one :)
The JFK one is new to me! Visuals like LGA or DCA are just pretty boring in IF imo, because you can barely see the visual reference
Actually that was the first episode of my series ;)
LFKC (Calvi) approach to 36 is very challenging - you fly the ILS 18 approach then break off and do a circle to land where you come very close to mountains.
Will look that up! Never heard of it before. Thanks for recommending
Thanks I will consider that one too!
Podgorica, Split RWY 23 and Ajaccio RWY 20 are really nice and challenging as well!
Will check them out too! Thanks
KMDW in general, some steep turns and short finals.
Did you check SEQM?
Yep made a few approaches there too. For some reason I find this place so fascinating and surreal
