Breathtaking Landings

Juneau, or PAJN, has an incredible approach from both runways. From 26, you fly over the small capital city, over several glaciers and mountains, and over water as well, and you make a turn on short final. Runway 8 is also breathtaking, you fly over glaciers as well, and then over water before making your landing. Overall, PAJN is an amazing airport for approaches and landings.


I also like Innsbruck (LOWI) and Paro (VQPR). They both have scenic and hard approach and landing sequences as well.

That sounds spectacular and is it a very difficult landing I also know in Switzerland there is also beautiful airports between the mountains. Paro is hectic I almost crashed on my final it’s beautiful but really a steep decent.

That is NZQN,Queenstown, New Zealand. Settings were all on high with anti-aliasing on. Definitely an airport worth it ;)

Vancouver, Kai Tak, Providenciales (MBPV), Belize City, Port of Spain was fun, St. Maarten was good, Punta Cana was really cool. I also need to get myself to El Calafate sometime soon, there’s a gorgeous lake right next to it.

KPSP RNAV approach is super fun. LOWI was a bit tricky. RKPK ils 36L than circle to land 18R is very difficult during low visibility conditions.

San Jose (MROC) is very nice. Lots of mountains on the approach and the coastline is beautiful. I would recommend a 737.

I was flying a CCX with a V/S of -40,000. It was a great landing.

Along side that, I love landing in Juneau. Great views, different and difficult (somewhat) approach… I could go on and on about that airport.

Ohhhh wow I saw a vid on YouTube about Maldives on IF it’s probably very nice and blue.
