I seem to remember that there is a small airport in Norway that is known for the difficulty of its approach.

Can anyone tell me which airport that is?

Thanks!

There are so many shortfield airports in Norway. It could be any of them. Do you have any more information on what part of the country?


911, where is your emergency?

Hmm... All I know is that it is served by Wideroe.

If there are several "tricky" airports in the Wideroe network, then I am curious to have all their names  Wink

Here's the Wideroe route map if it helps: http://wideroe.no/modules/module_123...yType=2&iCategoryId=42&iInfoId=248

Were you thinking about Leknes?

Maybe you're thinking off Honningsvag/Valan (ENHV) way up north ?
IIRC it's only served during spring/summer with regular flights and has a curved approach with special landing instructions and also very tricky wind conditions.
The co pilot needs to read back airspeed every couple of seconds on the final stages in the approach.


There are more difficult approaches in Norway, nice place to be a pilot a little bit like a little ALASKA.

Arniepie,

Great, thanks, that is already one of the places I was looking for. I am quite certain that there was another one, famous for its steep descent. I believe the place started with an "L". It's in the Northern half of the country AFAIK, but not 100% certain.

Which are approaches in Norway are more difficult?

You can start by sifting through the Norwegian AIP to begin with!  Wink
