Anyone have any suggestions for some challenging and difficult 747 approaches? I've been doing the Kai Tak one lately, but I'm looking for some more around the world.

Regards

Did you do the traffic pattern + base-downwind-final leg landings at LAX...that's challanging too.

I don't have the KaiTak scenery  Sad,

SXM is definitely challenging.

I hadn't done the Kai Tak approach in like 3 years, so I did it, and had to do a go around, so I landed on 31 instead. I lost my touch. It will come back though

Try flying the IGS 13 with a wind of 220/30 (crosswind limit), in gusty rainy conditions with a 700ft cloudbase. I can guarantee you fun with that one!

Try Innsbruck - ( INN LOWI ) - right downwind Runway 08.... you'll be the best of the best if you can do it... I've only got it with an Lauda B772....

BTW: Here is a pic what the approach looks like...

Oh, but i forgot.... it's not impossible - even in real life altough that was an overshoot from the Rwy 26 direction  Big thumbs up

ILS To 14 a KFRG. Do it down to minimums in the rain. That runway is only 7000 ft long. If you can land the 747 there, I'll be impressed. People have tried it in 777's and failed, I did it in a 737Ng BBJ and landed. The approach isn't the hard part, the landing is. By thee way, put the wind between 190 and 230 at 17 sustained gusting to 31!  Big thumbs up After the 747, try a 172, same winds!

Do you approach by the north or the south for realism to happen? I heard the pilots go past the airport from the north, do a 180 and land; is that true?

BTW, where can I get instructions/charts on the landing approach for ASE?

You want to know a challenging aproach?

Try rwy 5 at LPMA.

Is a small island.

Try it, and you will remember me.

I tired Innsbruck in an Fokker-100. Tough it was night. I almost crashed into mountains on approache. It was like an Hong Kong approach. A last 45 Degree turn and 25 degree nose down! hard but made it and did it twice.

Try some stuff in the Swiss Alps- maybe not with a 747 but some of those runways are hidden really well in those mountains!

Canarsie approach, which one is that one? I found one on www.dangerous-airports.com for KJFK and it was for VOR 13L/13R, is that the one?
