RDJ EA Landing in Gibraltar
Here, you will be trying to land at the LXGB Gibraltar International Airport. It’s listed as the most dangerous airport for commercial airliners by many due to the incredibly short runway and the fact that you need to avoid Spanish airspace! If you do this for more than 30 seconds, you will fail the mission. This interesting little parameter makes it much more challenging to fly here and land than it might have been in the past, adding a unique dimension to coming to somewhere like this airport.
RDJ EA Glider
When undertaking this mission, you need to try and land glinding aircraft as you were not fuelled up enough; now you need to fly to an old, abandoned runway that is used as a drag race strip. You need to glide along and try land properly in a challenging runway situation, as you need to try and time things like landing flaps properly along the way to make the landing as safe as it possibly can be.
RDJ EA Hawaii
This flight will see you come down in a survival challenge of unprecedented difficulty; you need to try and land after takeoff from the Honolulu International Airport. The front top of your cabin will be ripped off, and you need to get the aircraft under control as quickly as you can whilst protecting the passengers. You need to then make a very slow, controlled return to the runway for an emergency landing whilst keeping everyone safe as you try and do so.
RDJ EA Princes Juliana
In this event you will be taking a famous beach front flight, trying to avoid the mountains that lie just ahead of you. You need to bank just before the mountains to try and land a textbook flight, without putting anyone under any particular danger, or yourself!
RDJ EA Toncontin
In this flight, you will need to try and land at Toncontin International Airport, on runway #19 at night, during a thunderstorm. As if the conditions were not challenging enough, it’s listed as a seriously dangerous airport to try and land at due to the buildings in the way and the rather short runway that further complicates matter.
In fact, just a small handful pilots are allowed to try and land here, it’s that tough! The strong winds and the challenging flight that you need to undertake to even get here makes this one of the most difficult flights included.
This mission will see you try and land the daring Hudson River landing aircraft event, after the aircraft hit a flock of geese just after taking off. You need to land on a very specific spot in the Hudson River and set the aircraft down safely, allowing everyone to get off to safety.
