Can YOU land in one of the most chellenging airports in Europe? The Winter Wonder-Landing challenge will test your skills!
We’ve created the Winter Wonder-Landing challenge due to the sheer volume of people that continue to ask for it!
Innsbruck is known as an incredibly taxing place to take off and land from due to the environment all around you. Incredibly high mountains all around you make leaving and the approach an exciting ride for all involved.
Seasoned pilots will be able to navigate and deal with the topography that Austria serves up but … can you?
You will start a few minutes from the airport and with the guidance of your pilot instructor (if you need their help!) you will see if the mountains of Innsbruck can compare with your wits and skill.
Due to high terrain there’s no vertical guidance beam to help the pilots path to the runway. As such, an artificial descent path needs to be programmed into the computer to track your vertical profile.
The direction of the wind could be your undoing! From the east? It’s even more tricky!
If you don’t manage it the first time … you have 30 minutes to try and try again! If you do manage it the first time … well done! Lets see how you do with harsher weather … or a technical fault!
This exciting challenge can be performed during your booked simulator time and aside from the beautiful scenery you will see … you’ll also experience the high energy landing of Innsbruck, Austria.
