I've been wanting to do some flying to some nice airports. I mean where the default MS scenery is nice. Perhaps you know of some good water approaches, in the sense that the runway is right at the end (like in St. Maarten). I'll be flying small aircraft, so short runways are fine, but international airports are cool too. If there are any you know of in the southeast, particularly Florida, that would be cool too because I have a low altitude chart for that area. Thanks ahead of time.

Regards

Hi,

I have loved flying into the British Columbia region. One of my favorite is Kelowna. On approach you fly into a valley in between two mountains, then over the town of Kelowna. Only then to lay the wheels upon the runway. Then upon takeoff you lift right up over a lake inbetween two mountains right at the end of the runway.

I think that we've discussed this before, but one of my all-time favorite approaches is the Rwy 7 ILS approach into KORL.

Some of my other favorites:

ILS Rwy 13R, Boeing Field, Seattle, Washington (KBFI)
LOC Rwy 25, Eagle, Colorado, (KEGE)
VOR-DME - C, Aspen, Colorado (KASE)
ILS Rwy 20, Idaho Falls, Idaho (KIDA) - sentimental reasons
VOR DME Rwy 34, St. George, Utah (KSGU) - sentimental reasons also, but a fun approach
ILS Rwy 35 (the GA runway), Salt Lake City International, Salt Lake City, Utah (KSLC)
VOR Rwy 20, Cedar City, Utah (KCDC)
ILS Rwy 35R, Denver Centennial, Denver Colorado (KAPA)
ILS Rwy 21, Spokane International, Spokane, Washington (KGEG)
ILS Rwy 27, Helena Regional, Helena, Montana (KHLN)
ILS Rwy 10, Glacier Park Int'l, Kalispell, Montana (KFCA) (In fact, there is some great bush flying to be done in that whole area. Get a Great Falls sectional and do some exploring. Very good scenery.)


and last but not least, my home field:

ILS Rwy 13, Provo Muni, Provo, Utah (KPVU)

I just tried some island hopping in the Canary Islands. I accomplished the first leg today with a Cessna 182S and I must say, the scenery is nice on the islands. It was a very challenging landing today at GCGM (La Palma) because the winds were rather strong and I had to be careful because the mountain side is rather close to the approach. It was challenging, and I'm going to keep at it.

Normalspeed, I'd thought you'd say that, because I knew you would say something about the ORL approach  Smile (saw it on another post). Thanks everyone for the suggestions, I'll try them out some time.  Big thumbs up

Regards

If you have Austrian Airports, try to make an IFR-Flight to LOWI (Innsbruck) or Salzburg. Mountains and hills, very exciting! Big grin

I thought of another one:

Cleveland's Burke Lakefront. It's like Meigs, but it has two runways and an ILS approach.

Not really beautiful, but try Macau-you land almost on the water (kind of like SFO) and then taxi to the terminal on a tiny strip of land with water RIGHT THERE. It's pretty cool. Ketchikan, AK is a nice approach, as you fly through the mountains right before landing.

Hey-

If you like mountains and water. Try this route:

Take off from Zurich on runway 16 and climb out over the Alps, fly right over the central Alps en route to Venice Tessera Airport. Then the mountains stop to reveal the Adriatic Sea. Turn north-east just off the coast line of Italy over the outer islands on final approach to runway 4R, and toich down just as your whell seem to be skiing on the water.

Here's another one:

San Diego Lindburgh, LOC Rwy 27. (FS ATC calls it an ILS, but notice it has no glideslope. That makes it a localizer approach.)

I remember trying the SAN RWY27 LOC approach in near zero visability, in reality the field would have been shutdown, and I stuck the landing, almost perfect. Perhaps my finest landing to date.

Yawn..
Download Thomas Kwong's scenery and do the Kai Tak IGS 13 approach. =) That's a nice one!
