Where do you like to fly to?

My three favorite places to fly into on fs are Princess Juliana, Innsbruck Austria, and Jackson Wyoming.

Princess Juliana is just awesome landing a heavy.

Innsbruck is nerve racking especially on an ILS approach. So it with 1/4 mile visibility for real fun.

Jackson WY is just down right fun. Flown in here many times in real life, and it is incredible. You intercept the glide slope at 11500 ft, (I think).

I like flying into Gloucestershire (my local), and just doing curcuits, practising my take-offs and landings.

I also like island hopping and flying around Western Europe Wink

I love flying round robins at all my local airports in and around Santa Barbara and LA and the San Fernando Valley. Also Lukla in Nepal is one of my favorites. Beautiful mountains and scenery. The only plane I've managed to land at Lukla is the FSD Pilatus Porter. If you've been to Lukla you know what I mean.

Lukla is awesome, the fs version does not do it justice though. It is relatively easy in fs. Cessna Grand Caravan will get in there easy in fs, not sure about real life though. I wish fs had runways that were not level like real life, Lukla is a perfect example. I have been there, and it is quite an experience to land and take off there.
