KLAX. Thunderbolt lives near there. That’s scary enough.

I wouldn’t say TNCM has challenging terrain… just a whole lotta sea.

TFFJ. It’s hard in real life but even hard in Infinite Flight because the hill is literally invisible.

Yes. I crash every time when landing on 10…
So I use 28

Are definitely my two favorite ones

Try Landing at Leh (VILH)

Tivat isn’t too easy you get a 20 degree turn about 20 secs before landing on runway 32.

Oh yeah and London City (EGLC) as well

If you want to make Amsterdam Schiphol a bit more fun, you can do the circling approach into runway 24 if the winds are okay. Not incredibly hard, but a lot more fun than a normal 27 approach.

Every year my family goes to visit Wellington and the landing there are always so exhilarating!
More info to why here:

But yeah WLG or NZWN is a great one!
