Hey IF community, I hope that everyone’s doing well.
So I’ve been looking around for difficult approaches and I saw Paro Intl. Airport which seemed very interesting.
After watching several videos about landing at this airport, I felt that I was ready and that it would be a “Piece of Cake”. But it kinda wasnt😢
So an hour ago I hopped onto an A320 and I spawned at Guwahati Airport, filed my flight plan, taxiied to Runway 20 and away I went.
As I got close to my TOD, I noticed how hectic the mountains were, but fear not I know what to do.
As I went lower I could now see the airport and I was inbound for Runway 33.
But wait this approach is quite awkward I seemed to be oddly too high, so I used the forward-slip method to lose some Altitude and all went well. I landed but it was not very buttery.
In conclusion Paro Intl. Airport is a great airport, I advise flying there. Its a great way to practice your Mountainous (If I can say it like that) approaches.
