Highest airport elevation of the world

Recommended Posts

I know, this is not a PMDG NGX related question, but I have to try it out for the NGX.Tibet in the Republic of China has the two highest airfields in the world. Bangda airport in eastern Tibet, which lies 15,548 feet above sea level. It relegated Lhasa airport (14,315 feet) in Tibet's capital to second place among the world's highest airports.

What are the Airport ID in FSX?? I find airport ID: ZUBD, on the internet, but doesn't find anything in FSX.

also took me like 30 seconds to find a link leading to the scenery with the easy words "ZUBD FSX".. people should search at google before starting a non related forum post. i dont really get it as this avsim forum hosts so many other boards that might be more related to this.

Give SLLP a try, I've been there in heavies. Though it's a little over 13,000, the high and hot PA leads to long ground rolls and high approach TAS. I'll admit to carrying one of the planes oxygen bottle with me when I went in to file. Nose bleeds and being out of breath during the walk around was common.

Ok the sloped runway at Lukla says no no to the NGX. Even if you grease it the slope doesnt work. Any other mega short runways?

Give KASE a try. I fly into apsen alot during the winter ski season. The runway is 7000ft but the descent gradient is steep. Lots of cumulus granite around the airport. It's limited to weights of 100,000lbs and wing spans of 95 feet, but it's fun trying to get a bigger jet in on FSX. Though allot of operators have their own FAA approved procedures to get in there, you can find charts on airnav.com. Using the normal charts during marginal weather will have you going missed 9 times out of 10.
