Issue Cover

PC Pilot  |  Challenging Airports  


Our long-running Challenging Airports series, written by real-world pilot Chris Frishmuth, looks at some of the most interesting and challenging airports across the globe. Over the past few years we have endeavoured to replicate some of the challenging and unique approaches that can set the heart beating that little bit faster.

Rarely are airports considered to be ‘dangerous’, but the combination of difficult weather, terrain, aircraft performance challenges, or unusual procedural parameters can combine to ratchet up the risk factor. That’s why many of the airports we have covered in this series require special aircrew certification and training, or at the very least an elevated level of respect, study, and planning to safely operate to and from that location.

The airports in this series have been specially chosen because they provide particular challenges for the pilot. Instruction is then given on how best to fly safely into and out of each location, while minimising the risk factors. Due to popular demand, we have selected a number of our ‘Challenging Airports’ articles and compiled them into this special digital volume.

So, whether you’re new to flight simulation or a seasoned veteran, you will find many airports in this issue that will challenge your flying skills. Happy flight simming!
