Australia - Hamilton Island Airport (YBHM)

For aviators (and controllers…clearing throat) looking for a fun airport/approach, Hamilton Island Airport in Queensland (YBHM) is a great one.

The RNAV approach to runway 14 is just amazing. I’ve done it IRL.

Ive been there before! not only is the airport so cool, the roads are too small to fit cars, so golf carts are their substitute!

Re-upping this today, tower is now open.

I’ll have a look @Mark_Eatman :) Is there a certain GA aircraft that is suitable there? And do I have to pay attention to anything else?
