LOIJ runway 13R was fun
Biggest thing I can do at Lukla is a C-130. Make sure you share pictures of your 747 landing as well as some tips on how to land for those of us who cannot ;)
Fly below the glideslope. Then pitch up to align with the runway. Great way to shave off speed. Low and slow, that’s how it’s done
I managed to land an F22 here. Definitely not easy
The hardest approach I’ve ever done is Madeira (LPMA)
By a very long mile, yes.
Totally agree :)
Canton Island or ICAO PCIS. 600 miles away from Fiji and extremely isolated. Was used in WW1 and 2 as a stopover for American Military aircraft. Also in the 50s for jets from Australia to the US before the 747 and stuff came around. Now closed and I think a few people might live there. Used as an emergency landing strip if needed! Also there is a book about WW1 when a B17 is going to Canton and crashes in the ocean. It was carrying a very famous man named Eddie Rickenbacker. Here is a YouTube link to a landing here in real life, no ILS or RNAV. Just visual! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVi8ylbv4Hc&app=desktop
Try 60OR runway 01 approach it is very steep and The other side would be used in reality it requires a small plane such as the c208 as it’s a small airport but you approach over a mountain and then dive down and than flare at last second it is very challenging
Toncontin was a real treat the first time I tried it. I would highly recommend it if you want a challenge.
What is the ICAO code?
MHTG. You have to follow the airport charts for the full effect.
Madeira for soft touch down, is a bit challenge for me
Also LXGB airport is kinda challenging as well
Lukla airport in Nepal.
JFK Canarsie approach
my hardest approach was LOWI so far. I don’t have any of airports in mine that have hard approaches besides LOWI . If anyone wants to pass me a airport or two ill appreciate it.
I have a new one: the LGA Expressway Visual with huge fluctuations in speed, turbulence, and a bit of crosswind.
What waypoints to start that approach?
