Canadian Xpress March 2023 Monthly Challenge - Landing Challenge

Recommended Posts

Gustaf III Airport, also known as Saint Barthelemy Airport, Remy de Haenen Airport, sometimes as St. Jean Airport, is a public use airport located in the village of St. Jean on the Caribbean Island of Saint Barthelemy.

Due to its very short runway, very close proximity to automotive traffic on a nearby road, all pilots must hold a special license in order to land at the airport. The History Channel Documentary Most Extreme Airports ranked it the third most dangerous airport in the world, behind Toncontin International Airport and Lukla Airport.

The airport is served by small regional commercial aircraft and charters. Most visiting aircraft carry fewer than twenty passengers, such as the Twin Otter, a common sight throughout the northern West Indies and as a curiosity, the Canadian-built de Havilland Dash 7 is the largest aircraft ever allowed to operate at this airport. The short airstrip is at the base of a gentle slope ending directly on the beach. The arrival descent is extremely steep over the hilltop traffic circle; departing planes fly right over the heads of sunbathers (although small signs advise sunbathers not to lie directly at the end of the runway).

Your mission is to depart from Princess Juliana (TNCM), make a scenic turn around the island of Saba before trying to earn your license by landing on Runway 10 at Gustaf III (TFFJ) with any of the following Canadian Xpress freeware or payware aircraft:

• Any single engine piston or turbo prop aircraft.
• DeHavilland DHC-6 Twin Otter.
• Helicopters are not allowed for this event.
