[COMPLETED] 15JUL20 / 1800Z - The Great Madeira Flyin/Flyout! @ LPMA

Hello Everyone! Today we’re going to be checking out the beautiful island of Madeira! Madeira’s capital is Funchal. Most of you know, that Funchal Airport (FNC/LPMA), has an interesting runway. Funchal used to be known for its dangerously short runway, only being 1600 meters (around 5,250 feet). The airport was also built along the ledge of a cliff, meaning there wasn’t any land to extend the runway. In November of 1977, a TAP Air Portugal 727 operating the service overran the airport’s runway before crashing onto the nearby beach and exploding, killing 131 of the 164 people on board. It’s still TAP Air Portugals only fatal accident in its history. When this occurred, the runway was ordered to be extended. Since there was no land, they used stilts, or pillars, to hold up the runway. It was a difficult task to complete this project. Now, the airport sees around 50 flights per day (current situation).

Funchal is the capital city of Portugal’s Madeira archipelago. It’s backed by hills, and known for its harbor, gardens, and Madeira wine cellars. The centuries-old Funchal Cathedral, which mixes Gothic and Romanesque styles, is notable for its carved wooden ceiling. Fronting the harbor is the São Tiago Fortress, built in the 1600s. It now houses the Contemporary Art Museum, with a large collection of Portuguese works

Great event! One thing, I’ve been to Madeira, and I remember Lufthansa flying an a321 to Frankfurt, not an a320. If you want proof, I have a recording of a Lufthansa a321 taking off

I believe you, I’m just deciding to use the A320 for the sake of the livery being in IF, and, due to the current COVID situation. They’re using either an A320, or the A320neo

Any flight that I can use a widebody?

No sorry, I’m doing a realistic flyout/flyin

Can you put me in TO 3468(flyin) and U2 6246(flyout)?

@cptlogue, I have one question. Porto is short for Porto Santo right? If that is, why is the flight from there leaving at 7:55 if the island is only 10 minutes away?

Can I have gate A02 to LPPR for the flyout? Thanks

Am I allowed to have this but change it round to a Jet2 737 from Birmingham (EGBB) please? Time can stay the same :)

No, Porto is north of Lisbon with the ICAO of LPPR

@cptlogue, thanks for clarifying

Sorry for all of the questions @cptlogue, but me and my friend @figsss077 want to both fly in from the same airport, but the flights from london gatwick depart too early for us. Would it be possible if we could both fly TAP a319s from lisbon?

Maybe not right now. Maybe later if there is some room for you guys
