Whether many of these airports are that difficult to fly into or out of may be a matter of opinion. It should be fun to try though. 😎

I also found KJFK to be a curious entry in the D.A.D. list. Doing a quick Google on D.A.D. and KJFK did not turn up anything remarkable.

Very good find. These airports will keep me occupied for a while. I was having trouble landing at St Barthelemy so I followed an AI aircraft in spot view. It cheated!! It just flew through the mountains, made a landing roll, but took off again straight away when it found the runway wasn't long enough and declared a missed approach. Can anyone land at this airport and if so in what plane? I think it would take a fs master to do it.

I attempted the landing at St Barthelemy a few times last year. I think I made it on my second approach also using a small Cessna. I believe I throttled all the way back just as I past the crest of the hill/mountain and came in steep, flaring at the appropiate moment and using the majority of runway to stop.

That's a funny way to put it-- did you just about succeed, or just about crash? 😂

The J-3 Cub would probally be the easiest to try them in. I landed on a building with the J-3 cub once. Fear

😂 I was succesful but didn't have much runway left.

Air caraibes fly in all the time!! Must have some brave pilots.

I've tried a few "extremely short field" landings in the Cub, too-- the biggest problem is that if you brake too hard, you'll stand it on the nose!

I made several attempts to land a Cub in the football stadium on the lakefront in Cleveland, Ohio. Never quite pulled it off-- you have to come down at a very steep angle to get to the field, then you have to stop within 100 yards. . .

If you want to try that one, take off from Burke-Lakefront Airport (KBKL, IIRC) on the runway that goes generally towards the west, and the stadium will be there just to the left of your flight path.
