ShackStream: Shack Air Dangerous Himalayan Approach

This week's Shack Air flight takes us to Bhutan in hopes of delivering some precious cargo into a notoriously difficult high-altitude airport in Microsoft Flight Simulator.


This evening from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. PT, Shack Air will take on a special high-altitude challenge. The contract calls for the delivery of engraved glass aboard our trusty Shacknews Cessna Grand Caravan as we head from India into the high-altitude mountain airport of Paro in Bhutan. Our destination is surrounded by peaks reaching over 18,000 feet in height, while itself being nestled in a 12,000 ft tall valley. According to Wikipedia, Paro International Airport is one of the world's most dangerous airports and only a dozen pilots have been cleared to land there. We'll see if we can make it a lucky number thirteen this evening!
