The 17 Most Dangerous Airports In The World And Why You Must Experience Them – Jim Dobson

1.jpg

I found myself gripping the armrest as my plane attempted a landing in Africa on a remote sandy airstrip, the landing was called off and we needed to circle around several times in order to scare off several resilient giraffes that were occupying the runway. Almost a month later I made a dramatic landing in Bhutan that was like a scene out of Star Wars where my commercial airliner had to bank dramatically to fit in between the narrow, remote mountain terrain………..

Turbulent Touchdowns – Selected (Attempted) Landings At BHX – flugsnug

Selected (attempted) landings at BHX this winter on the more difficult days for the pilots. As usual, the problems mainly come not from the wind speed and direction but sudden changes in these. A couple of the shots are actually from 2014 but emphasize the bumpiness of the approach over the City at times.

The pilot of one of the landings here kindly made the following comment: “The thing that makes BHX stand out from most other windy airports is the fact that the gusty, turbulent winds seem to persist all the way down to the runway. In most airports, the air seems to be a bit calmer once you enter the ground effect during the flare, but not in BHX.

I’m not sure if this is caused by a lack of trees or some other specific terrain features in the area, but it makes the landings there quite a bit more interesting. These landings might look scary from the outside and trust me, it’s a lot more challenging and stressful than landing in CAVOK wind calm conditions, but it’s also the most fun you can have as a pilot.”

Top 10 Highest Paying Jobs in Aviation -List Aviation

In an increasingly globalised world where the cost of air travel has become more affordable, millions of passengers take to the skies each and every day. Yet, regardless of where they have come from or where they are flying to, they all have one thing in common: at one point in their journey, they have all travelled through an airport.

With such a high turnover of daily visitors, it’s no surprise, therefore, that airports can sometimes experience a spot of friction. What keeps things moving, though, is the people that work there.

In every airport across the globe, workers from a wide variety of backgrounds and capabilities fulfil an eclectic mix of roles and responsibilities that are all vitally important to the bigger picture – and you could be one of them.

Indeed, if you want to embark on a career in this highly dynamic and fast-paced industry, then you’re in luck. We’ve compiled a handy breakdown of the most lucrative roles available, and the best part is that many of them don’t require any prior education.

So, whether you’re looking for a new job or you’re fresh out of school, read on – these are the highest paying aviation jobs in the world…

The Coolest Pilots In The World – Mind Warehouse

If you have ever traveled by plane, you know that take-off and landing are the most preoccupying moments of the entire flight.
