MaxAsks: Kai Ta or Kai Tak. There is no Kai Ta in the ICAO Master List. Hong Kong’s Kai Tak has been closed for years. Just sayin

Legendary landings at that strip. Apperantly there is (or was) a massive checkerboard on the side of a mountain to tell pilots when to precisely turn on final, known as the “checkerboard approach.” I’ve read that it was a strictly captains only landing.


I fairly enjoy Oshkosh. If I need to do some serious touch and goes, I go to Oshkosh and use all the runways there to get a lot of XP.

Reasons listed above + the fact that Air Traffic Controlling becomes stressful in the smaller regions, especially for the approach controllers as there are more airplanes in an even smaller airspace.

I think ATC can devise a plan wherein we open the small regions like Oshkosh, San Fransisco & New york along side the bigger regions simultaneously.

This would :

  • Reduce the workload for the ATC in the smaller regions.
  • Unused regions like Oshkosh can be utilized by the pilots.

Ofcourse this would be only applicable in the peak hours/weekends when enough traffic and ATC is available for the big and small region to be active simultaneously.

@Damian… MaxSez. Made the run into KT numerous times from Fatima, Okinawa in a C-130. The Checker Board was a legend … Remnants of it still remain. Best Party Town in the Far East. Regards
