What airports do you know that have difficult approaches in FS? I know that Eagle co. Mun. (KEGE) in colorado does. 😳

i get confused between Paris CDG and the one next to it. Only differences are that on one the runway is considerably shorter

The approach to this isn't to difficult but the landings are exciting. It is Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport on Saba Island in the Caribbean. The only commercial service to it is by Winair flying DeHavilland DHC-6 Twin Otters. The runway is 1300 feet long with rocks and the sea at either end. I have seen it from the water but never landed a real plane on it.

KJAC - Jackson Wy. is not really dangerous or difficult, but you do intercept the glide slope at 11500 feet.

Fly the Potomac river approach RW 15 into Reagan National in Washington DC. Lots of last minute turns before you're lined up with the runway.

Princess Juliana Intl (TNCM) can be a hard but exciting landing. It can be hard to master at first but you do get the hang of it after a while. Its most fun to do in the heavies (espicially with KLM repaints) to recreate the videos of the planes landing there. Lukla airport approach isn't easy either
