There are a number of places considered to be Challenging Airports to land in. We will serve up a few to practice and show your skills!

You can choose to complete this challenging airports as a group of locations to see if you can land one after another. You can also choose to pick the top three hardest landings we can offer and see if you can land safely each time.

It’s up to you! See below to see what we can arrange for you…

Perfect landing like a pro!

This option allows for us to line up to five locations for you to show us how buttery smooth you can put the plane down.

You can practice during the day, at night, limited visibility and with the ILS (Instrument Landing System) … for those times when you can’t see past the nose of the aircraft!

Any landing is difficult when you can’t see where the airfield is!

Kathmandu, Nepal

This is one of those airports where additional training is most certainly needed!

You will learn of the potential threats associated with landing in Kathmandu and how to reduce the risk showing just how easy(!) landing here can be.

Head to Nepal where the aerodrome can be found in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. The terrain is as high as 27,000ft above mean (average) sea level. The runway is in a basin 4500ft above mean sea level.

What makes this such a challenge is the width of the runway. At 46m wide, the runway and terrain on the approach require the highest level of situational awareness and training. After all, the B737 and A320 are not the smallest of aircraft to fly into such a location. 

This approach will enable you to really test what your aircraft of choice is capable of achieving.

Maderia, Portugal

Madeira, an autonomous region of Portugal, is an archipelago comprising 4 islands off the northwest coast of Africa. The challenge in landing here is that the airport has high cliffs to the north of runway.  The northern wind breaks off the cliffs and as you test yourself in this location you’ll be coping with aggressive turbulence.

Therefore, landing in Madeira can be very difficult, even dangerous at times! Sometimes it is impossible even for commercial aircraft to land and they are forced to divert to an alternate airport. Depending on how you want us to set up the weather conditions you can try an approach pilots usually wouldn’t dare!

Innsbruck, Austria

This Austrian airport is renown in the aviation community for being a difficult airport to approach and land in.

This is due to surrounding terrain. It prohibits certain aircraft types from operating at the airport. Which ones? You will learn this should you choose to test this location.

The approach and descent are a complicated process mainly due to the Alps as they create epic winds and currents, which you will have to deal with the whole way down!

It is a Category C airport (an airport with special difficulties) requiring pilots to have special training before using it. Consider this your practice time!

However you wish to run this bolt-on challenge … we are sure you will gain useful knowledge in how to cope with different topography and weather conditions.

Had a fantastic time. Mak, the pilot who took the session was great in explaining everything. I can’t recommend it highly enough. If you have ever wondered what it’s like to be on the flight deck of a larger passenger plane you have to give it a go. You won’t forget this experience I Will definitely be booking for another go.

Well what can I say, a superb experience from start to finish. Andy made sure he understood my needs and could not have done more to ensure that I got the booking I wanted and Mak was a brilliant instructor with a lot of patience and made me feel very at ease attempting to fly the Airbus!. Not sure though that my passengers would have enjoyed those bumpy landings!!!

Many and varied scenarios and locations covered in the Airbus A320 - the hour’s flying passed in almost an instant but was great fun. Captain Mak is a terrific training captain who left me to handle turbulence, night landings, instrument and visual landings, cross winds and snow. With his expert guidance, I nevertheless made it onto the runway after each and every approach. A truly memorable experience and one to which I hope to return very soon. Virtually new equipment with first class graphics and realism. Thank you all at Full Motion Experience for a most enjoyable sim session. You can’t help but leave with a huge smile across your face that lasts for hours!

I had a PPL from 25 years previously This experience was brought as a present It brought my whole flying experience back to me . Mak was a great teacher and made the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable Flying in the a320 and the 737 simulator I was amazed the skills are closely related to what I had been taught in a cessna The same flying sweat returned as i tried to land on madeira and Katmandu ! What a great experience ; it brought the magic of flying totally back to me

Dear Captain Sia (Mak), Sincere thanks for an excellent training and flight simulation experience! It was a real pleasure and I learned so much from you. Your instruction and guidance was very clear. It certainly made me appreciate just how skilled and talented aircraft pilots have to be for the safety of their passengers and crew. Although I very much enjoy flying model aircraft, this experience provided me with a tremendous insight to flying the real thing! Keep Well & Best Wishes.
