MacAir Pilots, I have a few important announcement's to make. 
 
1. We have made a few changes to the MacAir POH. Most notably how our Airframe Substitution Chart.  The changes we have made will allow for more freedom in your choice of airframe.  Remember it is each pilots responsibility to be up to date with the POH. 
 
2. We have fully transitioned over to a new webhosting service. TFDi Designs. This merger has enabled MacAir to lower its yearly operational cost from $110 per year to $68 to and give us an opportunity to update our website to bring you a better user experience. 
 
3. I am super proud to announce MacAir has our own Maestro ! Staff Member @MAC0304 Jim C. wife. Mrs C. Which she has worked along side our CEO for the last few weeks on a new logo for MacAir.

November 2022 DotM

 

Airport: VQPR – Paro Airport, Bhutan

Division: Open / Historical

 

Several months ago I posted a video in the Discord Lounge of a rough approach and landing into Paro by a 737 crew (“Bank Angle Check”).  I thought we had flown in here before but after looking at the history log I saw this was never a destination of the month.  Time to remedy that.  Paro is considered one of the most dangerous approaches in the world with surrounding peaks as high as 18,000 ft.  Fewer than two dozen pilots are certified to land here.  Since this is November this month’s DotM will be even more challenging for those who fly their sims with real-world weather.


The airport was originally designed for the Indian armed forces’ helicopter operations in 1968.  Bhutan’s first airline, Drukair, was established in 1981 and to use Paro a runway was built to 3,900 ft in length.  This length limited Drukair to STOL craft and they worked through the Dornier 228, the ATR-42, and eventually the Bae 146 as their first “jet” aircraft. A new replacement aircraft was sought and in 2004 the first Drukair Airbus A319 arrived.  Today, Paro remain’s Bhutan’s sole international airport with the runway extended to 7,431 ft to better accommodate the Airbus.


All of the open schedule flights to Paro use either an A319 or B733.  For those registered in the Historical division you can fly into Paro with one of Drukair’s earlier ATR-42s.
