Dangerous Approaches Tour

Status: Active
Description: Join us for our first in a series of "Dangerous Approaches", as we fly the runway 15 approach into Paro airport, one of the World's most dangerous approaches. Paro airport in the kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayas is classed by 'Boeing' as having one of the most dangerous and difficult approaches in the world. So treacherous is the landing that only eight pilots in the world are qualified to land here. Runway 15 approach requires a 5000' descent within a few miles and a 360 degree turn within a narrow valley that has 12500' - 18000' mountain peaks all around... then the pilot has to perform a difficult and dangerous 'S' turn on short finals to land... sometimes finally leveling the wings while crossing the threshold of the runway.
