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


#84

LOIJ runway 13R was fun

I also enjoyed S88 and 4S6 when Global wasn’t out yet, even now that it is they are still very hard.


#85

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 ;)


#86

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


#87

Lukla ah too easy!


(with 98kts headwind)😉


#88

I managed to land an F22 here. Definitely not easy


#89

Anything is possible with the right settings. Vertical landing takeoff everything!


#90

Here’s one! Totegegie airport in the middle of the ocean 🌊


#91

The hardest approach I’ve ever done is Madeira (LPMA)


#92

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


#95

Toncontin was a real treat the first time I tried it. I would highly recommend it if you want a challenge.


#96

What is the ICAO code?


#97

MHTG. You have to follow the airport charts for the full effect.


#98

Madeira for soft touch down, is a bit challenge for me
Also LXGB airport is kinda challenging as well


#99

Lukla airport in Nepal.


#100

JFK Canarsie approach


#101

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.


#102

I have a new one: the LGA Expressway Visual with huge fluctuations in speed, turbulence, and a bit of crosswind.


#103

What waypoints to start that approach?
