I have tried number of times to approach into Innsbruck (LOWI)
Have the following experience
Say short flight from Munich to Innsbruck on a Fokker or A318 say.
On the approach ATC brings me down to 11 thousand feet and then clears for approach.
Usually it gets down to 11 thousand when I am like 7/8 miles out say from runway 8.
So from this height it is very hard to drop down to 3900 in reasonable distance to make it to runway 8.
I could never get down in last few attempts.
Other option is then is circle in the valley and then glide down to visual approach to 8 or from other other side 26.

Anybody has done this in FSIM.
Does anybody know how they do it in real life for approach in LOWI ?
Thank you in advance

I do visuals to practise my short final turns (Kai tak Styles) on runway 26 with a 744. This is so I can aim for the numbers and break in time. Very challenging.

Depending on how the weather is, and what mood the AI air traffic controller is in, you can be vectored for a "Kai-Tak style" visual 2,000 ft. high or 11,000 ft. high. At FL110, you have no choice but to circle to descend. Similar situations can occur at airports surrounded by mountains such as ASE and KTM.

just check http://webapp.icnms.de/ben/nue-str-inn-muc/imagepages/image19.htm - it works, but you need a descend rate of up to -1800  Smile

Check out the following link, I think your answers are there:


Funny this topic came up because I've been thinking about trying out the approach since it's known for being difficult.

The approach is difficult, but you should get used to it after a while. Luckily on FS, there are no real passengers, or they would have really sore bums after being on my plane into INNS. Beinga a 744 pilot, you have to come down hard on the runway at INNS because it is a short runway and you need space to brake. No greasers for me an INNS  Big grin
