Difficult%20Approaches%20%234

Also Co-Hosted by @callum5124 (He’s not in the picture)


Server: Training

Region: Caribbean

Airport: TFFJ

Time: 1800 Zulu - February 17th, 2018

NOTAM: In this installment, hop into your best GA aircraft and get ready to hit the beach (hopefully not the one at the edge of the runway)

IMPORTANT: You are required to fly the real world approach for runway 10 at TFFJ


We will takeoff from TNCM in either a Cessna 208, Cessna 172, or a Cirrus SR22. No jets are allowed at all. Landing with a jet aircraft will disqualify your landing. The flight will be VFR, so no flightplan is required.

Landings will be judged on a scale of 1-10 on the following 3 criteria:
Approach Accuracy
Technique
Smoothness

@A_Plane_Guy will add it on for you soon!

For the next one you should do Innsbruck (Runway 08 approach) I’ve done it in a 737 sim before its hard, but great fun! See you all at St Barts

I don’t know if anyone has pointed this out yet, but a landing at TFFJ on IF is nearly impossible because of a terrain glitch. Maybe you should go check that out.

Will do, thanks for the heads up.

We’ve done Innsbruck in the past, but no one followed the right procedure. Maybe we’ll try again some time…
