WASHINGTON – The airports that are of concern are not just the busiest and largest. Airports with the most dangerous landings are also often a concern for many people.
The most extreme, scariest and hairiest airport in the world. The airports on this list due to their extreme high altitude locations, difficult approaches, or short runways all make landing difficult.
Here are the 10 most dangerous airports in the world.
1. Saba Airport – World’s Shortest Commercial Airport Runway.
According to the Wonder List, it is located about 28 miles south of St. Maarten, Saba International Airport has the shortest commercial airport runway in the world. The total length is 400 meters (1300 ft).
Considered the most dangerous airport for landing. This landing strip looks amazing. You have to be a sniper pilot, to land your jet here.
2. Bandara Toncontin, Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
Crossing the mountains is just one obstacle that must be overcome in order to land safely in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
Toncontin had a number of dangerous things against him. It is located in a valley 1,004 m above sea level. During descent, the plane needed to turn 45 degrees to reach the 7,000-foot runway located in the valley.
Because the surrounding area is mountainous, passengers will experience a rapid decrease in altitude so that the aircraft can be parallel to the runway. Frequent winds complicated matters, as pilots were forced to make several last-second adjustments. One of the most dangerous airport landings.
3. LaGuardia Airport in New York City, USA.
Stunning city views on landing – USA. The 7,000-foot-long main runway over the water at New York’s LaGuardia Airport was extended in 196. If gliding over Flushing and Bowery bays wasn’t exciting enough.
Pilots had to avoid flight disruptions from two very busy nearby airports: JFK and Newark. Another unsettling fact: A peek at the airport’s location shows that it’s only eight miles from Midtown Manhattan.
4. Courchevel International Airport in France.
Courchevel Airport is known to have the shortest runway with a length of only 525 meters. Plus the runway has a slope of 18.5%. aspects that influence daily takeoffs and landings. Landing at the most dangerous airport in the world.
