When you think of challenging approaches within Europe, your mind probably immediately rushes the likes of Innsbruck, Funchal and Gibraltar. They certainly do pose a challenge and all three of those airports present their own difficulties for pilots in any condition. However, there are still countless other airports within Europe that also give a similar challenge but are often overlooked.
Tivat Airport in Montenegro is one of those airports that offer similar challenges to those mentioned above, along with stunning views of the mountains as you make some tough approaches over the coastal city and surrounding regions. Having visited there in real life just two years ago, I can vividly remember the hot sunshine beating down on my face as I watched multiple aircraft take on the low approach coming into the airport.
Digital Design, known for some incredible sceneries in the past, surprised everyone just a few short weeks ago by announcing that they were bringing this airport to Prepar3D V4. The eager beaver I am, I immediately downloaded it as soon as it was available and I have been reminiscing about my summer holiday ever since. The question is, how well did they do in bringing this hidden gem to the simulator?
