St. Barts, perfect for the 208 Caravan
And MHTG for the 757 and A319

In real life yes, and actually that airport is now closed.

On Infinite Flight Toncontin would be harder but terrain make it easy, at least on my end.

Me too.

There was a season when I went crazy with KMIA-MHTG route in the American 757, mastered it and became easy.

Lukla is a hard approach

I think Kastellorizo Public Airport “Megisti” (KZS/LGKJ) has a pretty underrated approach. Shame we don’t have the Bombardier DHC-8-100 to fly it.

Madeira is tough with the extreme crosswinds, especially with small aircraft.

One time I landed at lukla at night, just to realize that lukla has no runway lights. Somehow I managed to land in one piece, not quite sure how.
