World's Challenging Approaches -6 |LXGB|3-3-2018|16:00Z |

Postby SHM » Tue Feb 13, 2018 1:52 pm

Hi everyone,

Firstly, thanks to all the pilots who flew in the last leg of the World's Challenging Approaches Tour. It was both fun and nerve-racking experience at the same time. :mrgreen:
There were some Go Arounds, but everyone seemed to get down on the ground at the end in one piece :oops:


Secondly, there will be some important change in this leg of the tour, which will either get me to stop hosting this series or will pave the way for even more fun and exciting set of flights in the series later. As many have probably seen, we lost many pilots to other sims from the clan over the years and there is only a single common network that we can all connect to and that is VATSIM. Probably many have closed the tab at this moment. But to others who are still here thank you! :)
When I joined this community in its group flights back during the USA Tours, it was so much more fun and it slowly came down and down. Now I feel that this a step that will bring the whole community back together in what we loved doing. So, as I said above this time the event will be on VATSIM.

I got PM's from the regular pilots that they won't be coming to VATSIM So this will be the last leg I organise and my final flight in fg-mp.

And the airport we would be flying to this time will be Gibraltar International Airport (LXGB)

About the Airport:

Gibraltar International Airport or North Front Airport (IATA: GIB, ICAO: LXGB) is the civilian airport that serves the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. The runway is owned by the Ministry of Defence for use by the Royal Air Force as RAF Gibraltar. Civilian operators use the civilian-operated terminal. National Air Traffic Services hold the contract for provision of air navigation services at the airport.

In 2015, the airport handled 444,336 passengers and 408,757 kg of cargo on 4,100 total flights.[2] Winston Churchill Avenue (the main road heading towards the land border with Spain) intersects the airport runway, and consequently has to be closed every time a plane lands or departs. The History Channel programme Most Extreme Airports ranked the airport the fifth most extreme airport in the world.[3] It is exposed to strong cross winds around the rock and across the Bay of Algeciras, making landings in winter particularly uncomfortable.

Monarch Airlines was the largest operator at Gibraltar International, operating flights to Birmingham, London Gatwick, London Luton, Manchester Airport.[4] Both routes were operated by an Airbus A320-200. Monarch entered administration at 4:30am on 2 October 2017, ceasing operations with immediate effect,[5] around a year after rumours of its imminent demise became widespread. EasyJet operates seven weekly flights to London Gatwick operated by Airbus A320 family aircraft, as well as three flights per week to Bristol Airport and two flights a week to Manchester Airport. British Airways also operates nine weekly flights to London Heathrow being operated by an Airbus A320-200. Royal Air Maroc Express also operate twice weekly flights to Tangier Ibn Battouta Airport, which continue onto Casablanca Airport.

Although located in Gibraltar, the airport is also used by people travelling to or from neighbouring parts of southern Spain such as the Costa del Sol or the Campo de Gibraltar.
