Hi guys, just wondering the airports in which you have experienced the most difficuilt approach? I currently am trying to master the NZQN (Queenstown) approach - it has lots of mountaineous terrain.
KASE runway 33 and kai tak can’t remember what number.
I tried Paro yesterday, hard stuff. Lots of mountainous terrain.
Courchevel (LFLJ) has a crazy approach because it’s in the alps. One side of the runway literally is on the edge of a cliff!
Lukla and Aspen are quite tricky.
I will second what Henrik said. Jump in an A320 and traverse the mountain range!
Lukla (VNLK) Has the worst approach ever. There is a mountain in front of the runway about 1.5mi out, & sense the airport was dug out of a mountain so if you don’t stop in Time you hit a wall. Did I mention the runway is short.
I love when people use a southwest out of the USA and Mexico XD
Try 2NC0, Mountain Air in Burnsville NC, in real life is a VFR, daylight only private landing strip in the mountains.
WMBT Runway 27 was very hard to land in previous version of IF, it’s classic :)))
Paro is just great! Lovely enroute and a nice view on the ramp.
The tricky part is not having terrain on the map. I was doing a flight into Mexico and hit a mountain. I was like “Since when is there a mountain in Mexico” I learned something that day…
I wouldn’t say Queenstown is too hard, you just gotta follow the river. Kai Tak would probs be the hardest.
Yeah for sure, but if your approach is for RWY 05 then you have a bit of experience with it to master it.
KJAC in Wyoming is tricky due to the high altitude and short runway
just tried it I was in a 738 and screwed up went one turn to far and had to hoover a mountain and land really hard and challenging winds since that airports like in a funnel almost.
Just landed at Madeira runway 05 it’s a pretty tricky approach flew with TAP, Lisboa - Madeira.
@iLukas-Prague try this mate
flying there right now. The exact same route apart landing the other direction.
Tegucigalpa - it’s a tricky one.
