Wow,  that is one scary approach.  Breathtaking also.  Thanks for sharing.

What an amazing experience that must be! You must trust your aircraft and your instruments to an extreme level in order to undertake an approach like that!

Scott, you better have those OEM instruments hooked up correctly, man!  ;D

All the best,

Marco

Wow, that Paro landing was great. I actually have that on my list of airports we'll be visiting on my upcoming Tour of Asia and Europe. There is a great rendition of Paro for P3D V4.

I tried it and was not aware that there was a STAR coming that other way, I landed up the hill and it was challenging trying to drop enough height over those mountains without picking up too much speed.

It is considered one of the 10 most difficult landings in the world.

Pity the vid wasn't high def, but it was plenty good enough...
