Gibraltar Airport is considered a hazard for aircraft because the Rock of Gibraltar sits ever so close to the runway. Approaching planes have to curve sharply over the Bay of Algeciras before touching down to land.

Furthermore, the facility literally has a road cutting through it. Both cars and planes must wait patiently for each other to pass. Understandably, this creates a disturbance in the airport’s operations.

This month, your mission is to fly from Barcelona (LEBL) to Gibraltar Airport (LXGB) with either the Canadian Xpress Boeing 737-700/900 or Airbus A318/A319/A320 freeware or payware aircraft which are available to all pilots regardless of rank, but only for the challenge.
