Hello, I’ve had a look and haven’t seen any topics similar to this. I thought it would be a good idea to make this topic just to provide some basic information about flying in and out of Hong Kong.
Here is the airport diagram of VHHH. The northern runway 7L/25R is only used for arrivals. The southern runway, 7R/25L, is used for mainly departures and a few cargo arrivals. With increased amounts of traffic in Hong Kong lately, I have seen most people landing on 7R. Even when ATC was controlling on expert, most arrivals were made on 7R.
Next, departures are almost always made to the south initially. You can find departure procedure charts on google, but almost always you will be turning south after departure from Hong Kong.
This was not made in any way to be offensive, I just thought that we needed to be a bit more realistic in Hong Kong.
