I didn't exercised yet all the flights to the 10 most dangerous airports in the world, but Lukla seams to me to be the number one under them.


Trying to land at VNLK,I got one big problem. Luklas runway was not drawn correctly! Landing on runway 06 there is a sharp buckling after some meters, causing the plane either to jump or hitting the propellors the runway surface and crashing the plane. The fade-in video are showing the real runway surface.


This hindrance made a smooth landing nearly impossible. I had to approach the runway almost at the same level while decreasing engine power to minimum (red line). In short, it is not a near real simulation as I wished to fulfill !


Nonetheless flying from Katmandu the approach itself between the high mountains down from 14.000 to 9.000 on short distance in a narrow valley is a challenge by itself.
