Lhasa Gonggar Airport (ZULS) (default FSX Airport is Gongkar) At an elevation of 3,570
metres (11,710 ft), Lhasa Airport is one of the highest in the world. It was built in 1965, a second runway was built
in 1994, and terminal facilities were upgraded in 2004.HINT: landing a commercial airliner at this altitude is no
easy feat. More power and more flaps are needed because of the thinner air...
Tenzing-Hillary Airport (VNLK) (default FSX Airport is Lukla), is a small airport in the town of
Lukla,in eastern Nepal. A program titled Most Extreme Airports, broadcast on The History Channel in 2010, rated
the airport as the most dangerous airport in the world.land your Royal Nepal Airlines DHC-6 Twin Otter 300 and on
the 1616 foot runway, that is at an altitude of 10,006 feet, that is at an 11 degree angle, starts on the edge of a
cliff, and ends at the face of a cliff !The airport is popular because Lukla is the place where most people start the
climb to Mount Everest Base Camp. There are daily flights between Lukla and Kathmandu during daylight hours in
good weather. Although the flying distance is short, rain commonly occurs in Lukla while the sun is shining brightly
in Kathmandu. High winds, cloud cover, and changing visibility often mean flights can be delayed or the airport
closed.The airport's paved asphalt runway is accessible only to helicopters and small, fixed-wing,
short-takeoff-and-landing aircraft such as the De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter, Dornier Do 228, L-410
Turbolet and Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porter.
Everest South Base Camp (SBCN) Nepal is a term that is used to describe the base camp in Nepal
at an altitude of 5,364 metres (17,598 ft) (28°0'26?N 86°51'34?E). The camps is a rudimentary campsites on
Mount Everest that is used by mountain climbers during their ascent and descent. South Base Camp is used
when climbing via the southeast ridge. Supplies are shipped to the South Base Camp by sherpas or porters, and
with the help of animals, usually yaks. Climbers typically rest at base camp for several days for acclimatization to
reduce the risks and severity of altitude sickness. The helicopter of choice is the Eurocopter (above) for its high
altitude capabilities, but is still challenging to fly at this altitude.
