Any suggestions for airports with tricky approaches?

Are there any airports in IF that have well known challenging approaches in real life? I’ve gotten bored of the regular, old landings and want some ways to spice it up. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Also, any airports which have specialized approaches (such as KDCA) due to other reasons than terrain would be nice to hear about. Thanks!!

KMSO Has a nice approach since it’s surrounded by mountains.

MHTG, Tocontin International, has a reputation for complicated approach do to its location in the mountains in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

Definitely would try KASE. It’s situated right smack in the Rocky Mountains.

KJAC has a pretty cool Rnav Rnp approach. PHNL also has a fun approach into 26L I believe. There’s another fun Rnav approach into KABQ.

757/767, although I’d recommend smaller jets like the CRJs.

gotcha…the 737 should work then, right? An absolute gem to fly.

It will fit, but if you’re looking for realism, smaller jets only.

Madeira (LPMA) is quite tricky when it’s your first time flying there.

I suggest giving this thread a good read, so you understand the correct approach procedures.
