The most dangerous airport in Europe: Before landing the pilots must pass special training

For nice weather with skilled riders, landing is not a problem, but when it comes to strong winds that are not rare in Madeira, many people are not sure how the planes are struggling with a strong crash …


 

Although Madeira is closer to Morocco, it belongs to Portugal, and with its beautiful 180km of coastline, sea, beautiful beaches and mountain roads, it is worth every visit. To find out more about the uninhabited islands 1000 kilometers away from Lisbon, read more about the Portuguese pearl in the middle of the Atlantic.

What you first notice about Madeira is certainly the vastness of greenery, many of which are called a paradise garden. But before you see avocado, mango, orchid, and Bougainvillea on the rich soil of the old volcano, you will encounter one of the most dangerous airports in the world. The name is named after Cristiano Ronaldo.

Madeira airport in Portugal is approaching between the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean sternly keeping the clock movements. When landing the pilots first turn the plane toward the mountain and then in the last moment turn sharply to the right.

For beautiful weather with skilled riders, this is not a problem, but when it comes to the strong winds that are not rare in Madeira, many people are not sure how the planes are struggling with severe bumps.

Due to accidents in the past, the track has been expanded, but pilots still have to undergo special training before allowing them to land.

    This is a very interesting post for sure and I had no idea that an airport could be so dangerous in terms of flying in and out of. I guess it does make sense as there are obstacles such as room and all of that good stuff…. but I am definitely overdue for a flight of my own and need to go on vacation and Portugal is a destination that I have on my bucket list! 🙂
