Challenging Terrain Approach Suggestions

Hey all,
Just for fun, I was looking for some suggestions for some airports that approach over some nasty terrain, preferably an airport that can accommodate a jet. Any suggestions of any cool challenging airports?

Hi there!

There are some great suggestions here, I suggest taking a look! 😄


I’d also suggest LXGB.

Juneau runway 26, Paro runway 33, UGMS (both runways). These are just some of my favorite yet hard approaches.

An airport that hasn’t been mentioned in any replies or the linked thread is WMBT. It was the best place to go pre-global because of the very challenging approach. Both runways require a tight base.

The harder runway to land on is runway 02. Very tight left base with mountains all around. Don’t overshoot…

Good luck!
