DotM April 2021

 

Airport: OPGT - Gilgit Apt, Pakistan

Division: Pilot’s Choice

 

If you’ve been with this VA since the beginning, you’ll remember one of our first DotM’s flying to Skardu Airport (OPSD) in the mountains of Pakistan commonly used as a staging point for climbing K2. This month we’ll visit Skardu’s sister airport at Gilgit, which also serves as a major hub for hiking expeditions to the Karakoram range.

 

This is a fairly treacherous approach and a relatively short runway, so it could pose a fair challenge.  It can’t handle 737 sized aircraft, although the new Airbus A220 is expected to be capable and may soon replace PIA’s ATR 42s which currently serve that route.

 

This month will be Pilot’s choice since there are only a few flights in the open schedule.  Typically, only PIA services this airport with commercial flights to and from Islamabad, but the airport does accommodate military C-130s from time to time.
