From what i have seen it seems the majority of you still to well populated airports in commercial aircraft and stray slightly afield for some touch and goes to get up your landings!
It would be great to see to see more people at more airports properally exploring IF to its full potential which is why i am asking the community to help me compile an ever expanding database of small airports with wonderful scenery that seem to be not used very often!
So if you can help out suggest a few airports down below which i will check before adding them below!
•A remote airport hard to access and away from towns and cities
•An airport with no or little commercial operations!
•An airport unable to handle even a 737. Exceptions may apply
•Preferrably an airport with great scenery surrounding it and tricky approaches and descents!

For me since I live in Singapore, we don’t have very many GA airports. However when I visit my Uncle in the US I go and fly with him at N40 a tiny tiny airport. Biggest plane, probably a caravan. Btw if ur so intersted in GA you should check out the GA club that’s about to be made by me and @MisterButler!
