Shooting approaches at Kai Tak

Recommended Posts

I am very lucky to live in a city where I have access to a public full-motion NGX/32X simulator. Will be doing some VHHX approaches (among other things). In preparation for that, I have been practicing the checkerboard approach quite a bit. Here are some screenshots from my practice sessions.Last one is an MD-11 wing view above HK which kinda fits with the theme.Hope you like.Thanks for looking.

Must have been fun! It's my favorite approach in the world to fly with any aircraft (though I do admit I avoid the NGX here to faithfully simulate it, also because I need a heavy!) Nice shots! If you're ever on VATSIM, pop me a message and I'll be more than happy to join the party!

If you mean over at YVR's training facility yes I have thought the same myself. I was once there with a group of Air Cadets and when I inquired about their rates I was quite surprised to hear how affordable it was. May take the plunge one day and give it a try.Let us know how things go, better yet why not make a video if you are allowed.

you are also lucky that you can approach kai tak in the sim, lufthansa's simulators do not contain it anymore, you can fly the approach but the runway is displayed in its current status,btw flying a LH sim costs 800 and 900 euros for two hours depending on the type

Thanks for the link, I take it that is FLyTampa's Kai Tak? Been meaning to buy it for a while but after seeing it in your screenshots I am more than convinced to make the purchase.

Make sure you select non-sdk setup for runway textures....
