Notes

Inspired by the Lukla fly in, I made this short flight from La Mole to Courchevel, whose landing strip is perched on the side of a mountain in the Alps. The approach is great: there's no VOR or nav aid of any kind. About halfway through the next-to-last leg of the flight plan you need to turn right to 224° and descend. The landing zone is at 6,371 feet. It then rises sharply to 6,583 to help slow you down. If you wish you can find charts for the approach by googling for LFLJ. You also need a plane with the large, fully functional FMC/GPS to use this flight plan, as the final three fixes are custom ones I made with Goodway. I used STMA's PA-42 for this and managed to land in one piece.
