Hey there! Join me on a landing competition at Paro Airport, Bhutan! This competition will start at VNKT, kathmandu, and will land at Paro airport. The rules are listed below.

About Paro Airport

Paro Airport (Dzongkha) སྤ་རོ་གནམ་ཐང༌ paro gnam thang ) [IATA: PBH , ICAO: VQPR ) is the sole international airport of the four airports in the Kingdom of Bhutan. It is 6 km (3.7 mi; 3.2 nmi) from Paro in a deep valley on the bank of the river Paro Chhu. With surrounding peaks as high as 5,500 m (18,000 ft), it is considered one of the world’s most challenging airports, and only a select number of pilots are certified to land at the airport.

Flights to and from Paro are allowed under visual meteorological conditions only and are restricted to daylight hours from sunrise to sunset Paro airport was the only airport in Bhutan until 2011. Paro Airport is accessible by road, 6 km (3.7 mi; 3.2 nmi) from Paro city, and 54 km (34 mi; 29 nmi) from Thimphu by Paro-Thimphu road.


The landing at Paro is known as on of, if not the most challenging approach in the world! Let’s try to recreate this amazingly strategic landing in a competition! The time stated is the spawning time at VNKT. Please spawn at your assigned gate. When taking off from VNKT, cruise up to FL30 at a VS of -2500. Using the airport chart provided below, you must follow all points and altitudes as accurately as possible to get the most points. Descent will be calculated by you. Landings will be assessed as well.

Descent to FL16, and reach waypoint “TAKTI.” this waypoint is the starting waypoint to your approach into Paro. By looking at the chart below, you must follow all the altitudes as shown by flying in all of the valleys. The most accurate altitudes will result in more points!

NOTAM: Unicom at Kathmandu and at Paro will be used. Please be respectful and follow all the rules. Please copy my flight plan

Airline and livery: The aircraft and livery we will be using is the “Batik Airbus A320.” This is the most accurate airline to Bhutan airlines, which we sadly don’t have in Infinite Flight.


Please note. I am experienced with this approach as I’ve done it probably more than any other approach. I will be the judge, and I’m also asking for another judge to help me with judging the winners. IF you would like to participate to judge, please let me know below. I will not be listing the gates, and I will tell you your assigned gate once you join the event. lets get this landing competition as many members as we can! Any member is appreciated!
