What’s The Hardest Approach You’ve Done So Far?


#63

Saba airport in an A320. Mistakes were made…

St Marten in an overweight 747. Not because of the terrain but because I had to make an ‘emergency’ landing after takeoff due to 2 of my engines ‘dying’ and I had enough fuel to get me to Amsterdam. Almost skidded off the runway!

By Emergency Landing I mean I cut 2 of my engines to simulate a bird strike

Ummm when you don’t have approach plates it sure is…


#65

You don’t need approach plates. You just need the ILS and the minimap.


#66

Nah, I like to be releastic. Keeps me proficient on my instrument training.


#67


#68

Amazing! Where’s this?


#69

Just check this video


#70

So far, Kerkyra Greece. Was hilly terrain and the runway just appeared pretty much. Had to make last minute manoeuvres to land the plane!


#71

I was on approach and I didn’t notice it until it was to late and I crashed. It was a 2 hour flight, I was pretty angry


#73

Harrdest approach for me was definitely flying through all those mountains and then landing at Lukla.


#74

Don’t worry, your not alone. I have done it, as well as others.


#75

Why are you at Lukla in an A380???


#76

KTEX is on the side of a cliff in a valley


#77

Just for the challenge and fun of landing it haha.


#78

I tried it and I ended up going through the wrong valley 😕 it is quite difficult!


#79

I tried that one out after I saw Premier 1 Driver fly there on his YouTube channel. Pretty nice approach!


#80

Santiago, it has mountains close to the airport whose peaks are close to 18,000ft.


#81

Lukala in a 747… No competition


#82

You sure St Bart’s 747 can’t beat that??


#83

I would say a 20 minute flight from KEGE - KASE. The mountains made the approach really hard.
