(Results Are Up!) Difficult Approaches #6: Kai Tak @ VHXX - 121600ZMAY18

Pictured: Checkerboard Hill

Server: Training
Region: Southeast Asia
Airport: VHXX (Hong Kong Kai Tak)
Time & Date: 1600Z - May 12th, 2018
Fly your favorite heavy into what was once the most dangerous airport in the world.

IMPORTANT: You are required to fly the real world approach for runway 13 at VHXX

We will takeoff from ZSAM in either a 747, 777, A380, A340 or an MD-11. The plane must be a heavy (with the exception of the MD-11). If you use an aircraft not listed, you will not be allowed to participate. Because it is impossible to create a realistic flight plan with an airport that technically doesn’t exist, your flightplan is at your discretion until waypoint DOTMI. From there, use this flightplan:

DOTMI MAGOG 2217N/11519E CH 2213N/11354E 2218N/11354E 2219N/11356E 2220N/11410E 2220N/11411E VHXX

Landings will be judge on a scale of 1-10 using three criteria:

  • Approach Accuracy
  • Technique
  • Smoothness

Technically yes, but in comparison to the MTOW and MLW of the other heavies I included, it’s a bit of an outlier, so I chose not to allow it.

Hey, can I be put down as pending for now please? Many thanks!
