Airports with frequent bad weather?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

I love to fly my pmdg ngx in bad weather.

Does anyone know of airports that can handle a 737-600 that often has bad weather conditions?

I haven't tried it in the sim but the scariest real-world landing I ever had was at Wellington (NZWN) on a very windy day. The crash trucks were lined-up next to the runway just waiting for those pilots who didn't have the "right stuff".

Also, Iceland has frequent high winds depending on season. Boeing flies aircraft there to test their crosswind capabilities. (BIKF)

Far eastern Canada also has a few places that get hammered a lot. Places like St. Johns (CYYT), Halifax (CYHZ), and Gander (CYQX) are some of the places I've flown to and had some pretty cool experiences in.

Hi Staale,

 

Or you can try Deadhorse in Alaska. (yeah it really exist) It is always!!! bad weather. But in winter it is extreme...

I've done Deadhorse about 15 times. It's cold, but I've never been up there with anything I'd call extreme, luckily. Day to day, Fairbanks is colder and foggier. Juneau is rainy and cloudy and turbulent. Although, my last landing at Deadhorse was a bit of a trip with a HW shearing to a quarting TW on short final. . . good times. :)

15 times. Than you are an expert. But you're right. Snow and very cold weather. But the wind isn't that bad.

PAKT, ENZV(Stavanger), CYXS, CYLW etc and definetly southern Alaska airports like PAJN etc

Hope this helps - and all of them can handle a B736!!

Try Belgium in the summer :)

LOL..I was going to suggest Bournemouth right now (and for the last three weeks!)

 

Anywhere in England at any time of year, but preferably summer ;)

I love flying SAS routes. Aerosoft has ESSA and a few Norway airports. As mentioned above, ENZV is great for low vis and high winds and a great Aerosoft scenery.

I did a Queenstown to Auckland yesterday afternoon and had thunderstorms in the Auckland area, gusting winds and broke visual at 600' on the 23ILS...was a great flight!

Around this time of year, fly pretty much anywhere in the middle of the US - Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri etc - bad weather galore.
