Ive never flown a Boeing 747 into Aspen before - the biggest aircraft ive flown in or out of there is a BAe 146-200  Smile

I'm sure I read on another forum somewhere that it has been done in FS before - so i thought id give it a try!! Big grin

Anyway, it was a nice day at Denver, and after I recieved clearance from my parking spot over at the cargo ramp, I taxied to runway - 07. My cruising alt today will be 18,000FT with winds blowing from the East.

If you look just above and to the right of my tail you can see a United flight arriving on rwy 17L.

Note that I use 5 overlays for my Denver airport - so have all runways in use!!

Just reiceived T/O clearance

Just about to rotate

Climbing out, Gear up. I then performed a 180 deg turn while climbing to FL180

I soon passed over Eagle Co Regional Airport while descending thru 13,000FT

I received ILS clearance and was told to descend to 9,800FT

My final approach was kinda scary, skirting the trees with my landing gear!! Because the LDA is off-set, i had to do a 'Kai-Tak' turn before touchdown!!

Just managed to touch down safely, but not quite on the centerline (cant be perfect all the time)  Big grin

As soon as i hit the deck it was full reverse thrust, speed brakes and of course landing gear brakes too

Finally, i came to a sudden stop at the end of the runway  Smokin cool

Lets now hope that for my return trip i can get that bird outta there!! Big grin

Thanks for joining me on my trip!!  Big thumbs up

B747 Denver to Aspen

I can see some of the Aspen socialites already writing a letter to the Pitkin County Airport  Big grin

I can also tell that you were using FS02 since the ATC assigned approach was fixed for FS04 (During IMC, you will be given the GPS-C instrument approach).

Just as an F.Y.I., your "Kai-Tak" approach wasn't necessary for Runway 15 (I believe the Jeppensen Charts depict a "noise sensitive" area over where you did your daring maneuver). It is possible to do somewhat of a straight-in for Runway 15, or followed the Roaring Fork for 15. The Localizer is used for an instrument missed approaches and instrument departures, although I do find it useful when I am landing on runway 33.

Overall, take my suggestions with a grain of salt, and have fun. Now for the real challenge, try landing on runway 33!!!

Nice report, I'm planning on doing one for my made up airlines first flight from LGW to FNC. I've just done a FS2K2 delivery flight of a 737-700 from Seattle to LGW with a stop at LGA and KEF. As I said my trip report is coming soon.

Thanks Dave  Big thumbs up

Always after the picture you can't get..

Nice! I often for the heck of it fly a B747 from Denver to Eagle County Regional. I have once or twice flown the B747 into Aspen. I never follow the landing pattern though. I just fly straight in. Taxing is a challenge once you are on the ground. Good Luck getting out of there.


Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.
