Aspen

Aspen, FSX

Aspen is a ski resort in Colorado, United States. The local airport, Aspen-Pitkin County Airport (KASE) Map Photo, is located in a mountainous terrain which makes takeoffs and landings challenging.

The airport elevation is 7800 ft. The single runway 15-33 is 7000x100 ft and must only be served by aircrafts with a wing span smaller than 96 ft and only at daytime. Rwy 15 is the preferred runway for landings and rwy 33 for takeoffs, especially because rwy 15 is uphill by 2% in real-world.

There is three instrument approaches:

Try also a missed approach where you intercept a localizer on back course. Actucally this is the only purpose of this localizer.

See airport charts.

Denver - Aspen

Set season to winter and weather to heavy snows. Make a short taxi flight with ski tourists from Denver (KDEN) to Aspen in the Bombardier LearJet.

Comments:

This is a great airport to have some fun with. However, I have tried countless times to follow the offset approach and I always end up way too high. Anyone else had the same?
I can tell you how not to do that...cupcakes

Yes,cupcakes will lend weight.Perhaps,though,you might do better with lead or maybe cement in several paint buckets.
you can have cupcakes in FS? this is flight simulator not cooking simulator
Its gonna become a killing simulator if you don't stop talking about cupcakes!
theres a button in fs passengers to serve food...
...refreshments actually. If a cupcake will suffice for the burger lovin all american boy on the match dot com commercial (he's 'all american?') anyway, where was I?
