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


#104

was it a nice approach?


#105

Nice, and really cool to do, but the crosswinds were being…a female dog.


#106

It’s a visual, no fixes.


#107

I don’t think the weather minimums apply here 😂


#108

If you think about it, it just says ‘Hardest Approach’. I could be landing on what would normally be the easiest runway to land on, but if the weather conditions are terrible, I’d say it’s a hard, if not the hardest, approach.


#109

This is my landing at MHTG, it was my first attempt and it was pretty stressful! Likely, the hardest I’ve done. The landing wasn’t perfect, but I think it was pretty close. I should have brought the nose up a bit more. Check it.

Madeira Funchal, with the turn on the end, but at the same time one of my favorites :D


#111

As above, what are your top 5? I’m curious to find ones I haven’t tried. Mine:

LPMA
LIMJ runway 10
NZQN runway 05
KASE
LOWI runway 08

Uhh…
Kai Tak RWY 13 is well known for being hard


#113

Kai Tak is moderately hard
it’s only hard in IF cause I can’t find the checkerboard >:(


#114

Lukla is very hard as well


#115

They don’t have the checker board on the mountain in the game!! ☹️


#116

IF cannot really do justice to an actual landing there… but as much as possible l think this is still a very challenging approach to try… land a prop or Q400/DASH 8 at LFLJ/CVF on Rwy 04/22 without sliding off or slamming into the mountain !!!

It is considered one of the most dangerous landings in the world … here is a link to show how good an irl pilot you have to be…enjoy !!!


#117

Kai Tak is quite challenging I must say😊
@A_Plane_Guy😉


#118

Does anyone know what aircraft model is in that video !!!


#119

I would agree that Kai Tak is not one of the most challenging approaches out here. The reason it received worldwide attention back then was because it was such a busy airport compared to others with challenging approaches.


#120

Randall! It looks like its a Pilatus PC12!


#121

RWY 15 at VQPR is by far the hardest. Lukla is just easy and so are others compared to this one.


#122

LFKC Runway 36 is definitely the hardest for me. I’ve had plenty of practice at all the others mentioned to make them no longer difficult, so yeah, LFKC.


#123

Forgot that one. We need a tutorial for it, it’s very very difficult.
