Hello all Airport MAX Out Pilots!
Airport MAX Out currently focuses around filling the airport and flying to different destinations across the globe! However, there are also other types of events such as group flights. Our new event, Airport MAX Out Pre-Show if this type of event! It is designed to bring all the members of the event together before departing on our own across the globe! This event I focused around difficult approaches and includes airports such as TNCM and TFJJ! It will take around 45min to complete. If you do crash, please join us at the next stop and wait till the event has completely arrived at the airport! This event directly corresponds with our Main event the following day, so if you are interested, please join this event and the one tomorrow!
Saint Barthélemy Airport
Both the airport and the island’s main town of Gustavia are named for King Gustav III of Sweden, under whom Sweden obtained the island from France in 1784 (it was sold back to France in 1878). In 1984, Swedish Minister of Communications, Hans Gustafsson, inaugurated the terminal building of the Gustaf III Airport. The short airstrip is at the base of a gentle slope ending directly on the beach. The arrival descent is extremely steep over the hilltop traffic circle; departing planes fly right over the heads of sunbathers (although small signs advise sunbathers not to lie directly at the end of the runway). The airport is located at the island’s second-largest town, St. Jean. The History Channel program Most Extreme Airports ranks Gustaf III airport, which is casually referred to as “St. Barth’s”, as the third most dangerous airport in the world. (Wikipedia)
Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport
Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport (IATA: SAB, ICAO: TNCS) is an airport on the Dutch Caribbean island of Saba. The airport, named after the Aruban Minister Juancho Irausquin, has one of the shortest commercial runways in the world, only 400 metres (1,312 ft) long, flanked on one side by high hills, with cliffs that drop into the sea at both ends. Although the airport is closed to jet traffic, regional airline propeller aircraft are able to land there under waivers from The Netherlands Antilles’ Civil Aviation Authority. (Wikipedia)
Princess Juliana International Airport
Princess Juliana International Airport (IATA: SXM, ICAO: TNCM) is the main airport on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin, located on the Dutch side of the island in the country of Sint Maarten. In 2010, the airport handled 1,645,105 passengers and 60,870 aircraft movements. The airport serves as a hub for Windward Islands Airways and is the major gateway for the smaller Leeward Islands, including Anguilla, Saba, St. Barthélemy and St. Eustatius. It is named after Juliana of the Netherlands, who as crown princess landed here in 1944, the year after the airport opened. There is also an airport on the French side of the island, called Aéroport de Grand Case or L’Espérance Airport.
The airport has very low-altitude flyover landing approaches, owing to one end of its runway being extremely close to the shore and Maho Beach. (Wikipedia)
