Agatti Island is a remote island off the coast of India that is only accessible by boat or airplane.

Being that it’s located on a tiny archipelago, the airport doesn’t have a lot of space for airplanes. Its runway is only 4,235 feet in length, making it too short to accommodate most commercial aircraft.

The facility is about to undergo an expansion, which will see the existing runway expanded by 1,100 feet. They will also construct a new terminal building and parking area. In the future, it will be able to handle an Airbus A320 and Boeing 737. Back when it was built in 1988, the only plane it could take was a Dornier 228.

This month, your mission is to fly from Cochin International (VOCI) to Agatti (VOAT) with either the Canadian Xpress® Aerospatiale ATR72-500 or Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 which is available to all pilots regardless of rank, but only for the challenge.
