A Few Videos That Could Help:

Last time I held this event, everyone except one contestant either (a) dropped out last minute, or (b) didn’t show at all. I’m hoping this goes differently. I understand life happens, but if you sign up, please make sure you can make it.

The flight will begin at MHLM, I recommend you use SimBrief to file your flightplan. Charts are required (quite frankly, you won’t know what you’re doing without them). You must semi-accurately fly the approach according to the charts, otherwise you will be disqualified. Please do not use any aircraft larger than a 757, otherwise you will likely overrun the runway. The event will not begin unless/until there are at least 2 judges and 3 pilots on board. This airport is the 2nd most dangerous in the world (according to the History Channel) for a reason; be careful.

You will be judged on a 1 to 10 scale based on three criteria:

Approach Accuracy

Gate 2

Ramp 5A
Ramp 5B
Ramp 5C

Have you done Kai Tak yet?
We all know the mountains make for a fun approach…

I plan to do that next.


Would you like to be placed on the pending list?

No, I sadly don’t have IF pro.
I was making a suggestion.
If you could do VHXX in July I’d gladly come.

July is a long way down the line, but we’ll see.

Yes please, If I have time, I will join you for sure.

I will place you on the pending list, is that ok?
