The Most Dangerous Airports: Lukla. The next in The Most Dangerous Airport Mission Series: namely Lukla. This is a mission, a simulation of Yeti Arlines flight into Lukla. The Lukla approach is very unusual because there is no turn-around; one attempt and one landing. Pratice before hand is in order. By Robbie Albers.
I have include several webpages from the internet as a guide.
All files are include, unzip it to a temp folder of your choose, then into FSX as indicated by the Package layout tree. Make sure your mission show captioning is ticked on.
Special thanks for this mission go to don_aashik for creating the DHC 6 and the creator of the Lukla Scenery I can't find the name of the creator any more sorry.
Enjoy the missions. I did, creating it.

When using a flight simulator, those who have never experienced it for more than ten minutes tend to class it as “boring”. You’ve no doubt have this conversation with a non-sim fan yourself; it’s time wasted, where’s the fun in everything being so realistic etc.; the list goes on! Thankfully, this problem no longer has to be thorn in your side that it once was thanks to the help of modifications such as this. You’ll get to show people that it’s not all angles and procedure and that you can get yourself in some rather terrifying circumstances and situations – after all, aircraft undertake some of the most dangerous and daring events that humans have taken on in recent times!
This mission series will take you to the Yeti Airlines in Lukla, and will give you something far different to what you are probably used to if you are flying in FSX. it takes attention to detail to a whole new level and ensures that you are going to be seeing something entirely different to the usual scenery graphics in-game. The massive level fo quality in everything from the shadowing to the layout is something to be admired and I know I spent more time than usual nearly crashing into things after simply getting caught up in looking around.
Given the fact that you have only one landing to take on, and one attempt to actually get it right, this is the kind of flight that is incredibly challenging yet a lot of fun to master. Trying to land by the tight margins required to succeed here can take many, many attempts and have you up until the small hours in the morning trying to get it right; it’s that kind of airport. For those who want a challenge, start here.
Before you are able to make that textbook landing you will need to give it multiple attempts; even if you think you’ve seen everything that FSX has to throw at you, you’ll never have experienced anything quite as absurdly difficult as this. It’s a real veteran’s challenge and will have you pulling out all of the stops to make sure you can pull off the landing in a natural format. If you are ready for a proper timesink of a landing that will feel like a genuine accomplishment when you finally land it, this is worth starting with.
As ever, these kinds of scenery additions are a piece of cake to get added into the game; it literally only takes a few minutes to get right and a couple of clicks to get the installation started. Now, you can start flying to Lukla to take on this outrageously difficult landing. Make sure you take a few circles around first before you even consider the landing, as if you try and rush it you will find yourself in quite an iffy situation, given the massive margin for error that exists thanks to the purposefully difficult way the landing’s designed.
