Extreme Asian Airport Tour

 

 

On behalf of the management team here at Virtual Northwest Airlines we would like to present the Extreme Asian Airport Tour.  This tour begins and ends from our EHAM Hub and once arriving into the Asian Arena it involves some of the most dangerous Asian airports in the world.  Before you fly this tour we highly recommended that you brush up on your short field takeoff and landing skills. You should also make sure that you have scenery for every airport on as a lot of these airports are modeled incorrectly in most simulators. Please go to the Forums under vNWA Tours for all the details.


When you are ready to sign up click on the Operations Tab at the top of the homepage then click on Tours for the "Extreme Asian Airport Tour"
