Quito approach is fun also very scenic approach and u must hand fly around mountains

Queenstown is also a very fun approach and certainly one of the more scenic!


MHTG is one of the hardest approaches I have done especially with bad visibility.


Juneau Alaska is a hard one especially in low visibility you have to fly through a tight valley then bank left for landing on a short runway

I enjoy hand-fly visual approaches, below are some really fun last-minute turn approaches.
