This is a great little mod to have, albeit rather simplistic. It adds in eight awesome yet short little flights that let you take on some of the world’s scariest airports. These flights are not only great fun to be involved with for the added challenge and the extra layer of realism that it brings to the table but also for the learning curve.

I had never visited many of the airports included in here and truth be told it took me weeks to visit them all in the first place! I had to get involved with a fair amount of “experimental” flights that were more or less certain failures. Although I had a lot of fun doing this I won’t pretend it was not frustrating.

However, that was the aim of the game here; it’s supposed to be a really annoying challenge! I really appreciated the work done by Andy Johnston on this though it was a great amount of fun to be involved with.

I will say though that Andy could have made it a bit clearer on the installation front. To get it to work you need to find the files in your My Documents folder, and then they will appear under Free Flight.

You then load up the save which is more or less putting you in position for your landings, so it’s a bit of a shame it takes a little away from the actual piloting aspect.

However landing at these airports alone is a hard enough job so you should have plenty of fun trying to get that right! I was a big fan of this and would use it again, although it does have to be made a little easier to access than it is at this moment in time.

I'm very very happy with all your downloads. I'm almost 80 years old and still enjoy Flight Simulator! Sincerely Frans Biere.

Just stumbled on this. Annoying that no one's answered your pleas before now.

Firstly, these missions aren't bad. Nice to be set up for landing, get all that boring actual piloting out of the way. :)

Okay -- Dig, if you will, the picture:

The files in this archive are files that FSX saves when you save a flight. There are several files saved for each Flight or Mission you save, so there are a bunch of them for 8 flights in the above archive.

FSX stores those files here:

C:usersMy DocumentsFlight Simulator X Files

...where is the Windows account name under which you fly FSX.

So unarchive this page's download file into that directory, and these missions should appear when you choose FREE FLIGHT, and click the LOAD button.

Keep on dancing in the 3rd dimension! --Salo

Ok I've been trying to install this with no luck still unfortunatly, but if you extract the file and then open it, you will find approx 35 files under the same name - "worlds scariest runways", out of these 35 or so, is 8 files still named "worlds scariest runways" except the file type should say "Microsoft Games fsx.exe. Double click one of these files and it will open up FSX and load that mission. It will start you mid flight, there is no mission info, no directions, nothing just you flying that route to the runway. Its not loading the mission on to your system, but at least you still get to fly & land on the runways.

Hey - Is there anybody out there???? Again and again we ask for instructions on how to install this. So, if you are experts and laughing at us and thinking we are not worth the bother, then you are doing a good job. Please add instructions to these files, the same as hundreds of others that I have downloaded do.

An instruction file on how to install would be nice!

billp645Thu, 02 Feb 2012 13:03:59 GMT

Anyone help with how/where to install the files?

ivanmuriloSun, 11 Dec 2011 20:49:16 GMT

It would be nice to provide a tutorial to install this stuff, or provide the files organized in folders, so we don't have to guess where to put every single file. It's a bad download.

Al1337Sun, 04 Dec 2011 09:05:26 GMT

How do you install this. I can't seem to get FSX to recognize that they are there.

cybermuskyThu, 27 Oct 2011 14:24:15 GMT

Where must i place these files?
