<gulp> I can only choose five??? Well in that case I guess I have to avoid the obvious Heathrow/Frankfurt/Schipol candidates, and look at those with other qualities. I still couldn't sensibly hope to get the list down to five, though, so here are the first five that happened to occur to me when I started making the list. Some of the reasons for inclusion will not be obvious, but they're valid for me. happy.png In no particular order, as they always say...... (other than alpha sequence of ICAO code, anyway):— EFHK Helsinki VantaaLEPA Palma de MajorcaLFMN Nice, Côte d'AzurLFRP Rhodes DiagorosLOWI Innsbruck Your mileage may vary. Indeed, I'd be very surprised if it didn't..... wink.png Cheers, Brian

My current favorites: Almost all of the above ;-) plus: LPMA Funchal MadeiraEGJB Guernsey (4800ft runway makes this one interesting + plus there is a very good payware scenery available now)LOWW Vienna Sometimes I fly into Kerry, Ireland (EIKY) although it is stock FSX scenery - because it reminds of a beautiful vacation in southwestern Ireland, otherwise nothing spectacular.

Hi, I am going to base my answers on the frequency and quality of the VATSIM ATC folks and my enjoyment of flying into these airports. EDDMLGAVLOWWESSAEGGK This is also based on the fact that I am living in Japan, so at the times that i fly, (11pm - 2am japanese time) these stations are often online. On Vatsim my callsign is always (something21) eg: QFA21. and I would like to send a thanks out to the Vatsim controllers who may be reading this, who make my hobby so much fun and rewarding. Cheers, NicholasB

That'd be: Manchester, Almeria, Birkdale Sands, Archangelsk, and Ruzyne. Most of which are not payware, but there's good freeware for a lot of them. Al

EKCH, LOWW, LOWI, EICK, EDDF. My flights in Europe are mostly with airliners so I prefer airports with good Vatsim coverage.

Hey guys it wouldn't kill anyone if you included the airports' names, or at least the cities where they are located ;) My favorites (I don't visit Europe too often (sim-wise that is, never been there in real life), so they might seem too obvious): LEMD - Madrid-BarajasEGLL - London HeathrowLMML - Luqa (Malta)LHBP - Liszt Ferenc Intl. (formerly Ferihegy), BudapestLIRF - Leonardo Da Vinci Intl. (Rome)
