Controlling the LEGENDARY Kai Tak Final Approach! (IFATC Timelapse)

Howdy y’all!

I had an amazing session controlling the legendary Kai Tak (VHHX) final approach yesterday! Although this airport is no longer in use in real life, the Infinite Flight community revived it with this amazing fly-in event! I tried my best to recreate the famous Checkerboard Visual Approach at the airport, using Navaid NDB CC @ 4500ft followed by a turn to heading 040 to NDB SC @ 2000ft. Huge thanks to the whole team at Kai Tak that helped with this session (tagged below), Hope y’all enjoy!

Glad you caught that! When I opened up there was no approach yet, so the classic Kai Tak Approach was not in use. In order to fit all those aircraft that had already been sequenced in, I used that S pattern to bring them back to the first Navaid, NBD CC, before I could sort it out and create the downwind that I wanted. Thanks for asking!
