Challenge: Land at Lukla Airport but on Runway 24

This challenge got inspired by this topic here:

When I get bored in IF I try to find some challenges. This is the one I found today.

See, Landing into a trench was fun. However, you had the advantage of a long runway. My challenge might be a little easier, but it’s still not the easiest thing to do.

The goal: Land at Lukla Airport on Runway 24. I used the TBM 930 for it as it’s our newest and most realistic GA plane.


I crashed on my first try, the second try worked. Still not happy though as I had to do a U-Turn at the end of the runway.

Give it a go, I’m sure fore some of you this won’t be an issue at all!


The master is Mr. @AdamCallow.


Maybe some room for improvement?


I’ve landed on 24 most times I’ve been to Lulka.


Yeah I have tried but have made 3 go around

since this airport was built landing and take off are done in two different directions, and from what I could see in your video I would not say that you did it, because that turn that you did in the end, you would not do with an real aircraft.
but it was worth the try!

Isn’t a go-around at Lukla the same as crashing into a giant rock?


I did it🎉


Well I pull up like 90 degrees(unrealistic) so no problem
