Canadian Xpress December 2015 Challenge – Dangerous Airports Vi & VII


This month we hit 2 of the world’s most dangerous approaches in the warm Caribbean.

Saba, Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport has the shortest commercial runway in the world, only 396 meters (1,299 ft) long, flanked on one side by high hills, with cliffs that drop into the sea at both ends.

Saint Barthélemy, Gustaf III Airport short airstrip is at the base of a gentle slope ending directly on the beach. The arrival descent is extremely steep over the hilltop traffic circle; departing planes fly right over the heads of sunbathers. Ranked the 3rd most extreme airport in the world by The History Channel.

This month, your mission is to depart from Princess Juliana (TNCM) on the Island of Saint Maarten with the Canadian Xpress DeHavilland Dash 6-Q300 and fly to Saba (SABA or TNCS) then on to Saint Barthélemy (TFFJ) before returning to Princess Juliana (TNCM).
