I have one approach for you, which is DEFINATELY difficult (and which is NOT Kai Tak!), but unfortunately only in FS2000... So if you don't have FS2000, I'm sorry. But if you do... Just jump over to Kasiguncu (WAMP)... :-lol and have FUN!!!Etienne

If you fly a "heavy" a defintely challenging approach is to Princess Juliana airport at St. Marteen (TNCM). The runway is a bit narrow and short for a big airplane (yes, there are 747s landing there every day). Also you mostly just fly this approach visually (therefore manually !) - use VASI for glideslope. If you can do it reasonably well then you have earned your stripes ... ;-)Anoher excellent example, also in the Caribbean is a visual approach to San Juan's runway 8. The trick is that you set yourself up for an ILS to runway 10 and continue this approach but when at about 500 ft you break away, make a sharp left turn and land on rwy 8 instead !!. This is indeed a very difficult thing to do - you have only one chance and there is little room for imprecision - it is also all over in seconds so if you mess up ... :-( Generally every approach can be made "challenging" if you want to do it right, fly with precision and in difficult weather.
