What’s a hard airport to fly into after a long haul flight because I have had my mind on this for a while and can’t find a good one so I want to here your suggestions
Lulka jk, Wellington can be fun.
I don’t think the length of the flight really matters. If an airport is hard to land at, it’s hard to land at regardless.
Well I was thinking what a great feeling it would be to land at a hard airport to land at with a a380
For short haul yes long haul no
Gibraltar International - Gibraltar.
Here’s one of the approaches
I personally would highly recommend flying into Queenstown, New Zealand. [NZQN]
It provides a bit of a unique challenge, but rewards with an absolute cracker of an approach;
What’s the average airplane size for it
Love flying into here
Well there are many airports with hard approaches. Such airports include Lukla (GA, Prop), St.Barths (GA, Prop) or Kai Tak. (Commercial).
- Just as a reminder we have a similar topic opened. You may check it out for yourself.
Largest is a 767
But I want some where where I can take a let say 777 and have a ridiculously hard approach but it’s a real flight where would I go?
Why didn’t I think of that one? Yes, MMMX is one of the more difficult commercial airport approaches.
And it’s a long haul flight
I could go there but other options
But what makes it hard don’t fly there really ever
You could try OAKB. I think Emirates flies a 77W there
Your ILS intercept comes around half way down the cone. It takes a lot of planning.
The hardest approach I have ever done is UGMS runway 20and VQPR (Paro) Runway 33. So fun to do and some of the hardest in the world. Hope you try them.
Ok I see thanks
