World's Challenging Approaches -7 LSGS

... or the journey to the heart of the Alps in FlightGear MP environment.

Image

Perfectly situated in the heart of the Valais Alps, Sion International Airport is the perfect gateway to famous ski resorts such as Verbier, Crans-Montana, Gstaad, Saas Fee and Zermatt. The airport is geared as a base for business jet operation, and at 2,000 metres, the runway is long enough to accommodate aircraft size up to B-737 VIP Version and the A-320 fleet. Approach guidance into the Rhône Valley. Airport Sion is in close proximity to many famous mountain resorts, so it takes no time to reach your final destination. Zermatt or Gstaad can even be reached by helicopter transfer. The flight duration is less than 15 minutes from Sion Airport.

Short After Action Report :
Event started IAHM-COL 45 minutes before planned take off. My sons had "Young firefighters competition", I joined 1535Z. After some minutes Skyboat came on the scene. One angry Harrier from Lanveoc air guard flies around as agressive mosquito. I took off from 25L and made sharp turn to the left. I was 30 seconds in the P112 zone, but without any incident. On the route to Sion some other pilots joined to our small group. LSGS METAR reported 10-14 kts wind from 080, no significant problem for Buses or Boeings, but for Concorde with landing speed more than 180 kts it was serious task. 15 miles before airport I must solve another problem - IAHM_COL's speed was too low for safe separation. There was 2 solution - pull up, climb to FL170 and return to GS615, or slam throttle lever to maximum forward and accel as fast as possibe. Olympuses made their job and IAS needle very quickly hit number 250. Some seconds later nose down, gear down and slowdown to 170 kts in attempt to land. I touch the ground with maximum possible pitch 12 deg and speed around 160 kts. With full reversers was able to stop 500 feets before end of the runway.
After refuel I took off for subsonic IFR to LZIB.

Again - thank You for very nice flight.
