About This Content

Developed by aviation guru and flight simulation enthusiast Jane Whittaker, Dangerous Approaches is a mission pack consisting of 20 of the most nail-biting approaches in modern aviation. Following routes flown by real-world pilots, accuracy in speed and direction is of the essence.

Each mission starts in a default FSX: Steam Edition aircraft picked specifically for each approach, although any aircraft may be used on any of the flights. The flight plans are pre-loaded into the GPS of the aircraft to give you the best chance of landing these approaches.


  • 20 nail-biting missions ranging from 20 minutes - 3 hours
  • 30+ hours of flight time
  • Pre-programmed weather settings varying from sunny skies to blizzards to thunderstorms.
  • Successful landings are recorded in the FSX Logbook
  • Featuring voiceovers by Angel Heaven Lee

Please note that the FSX mission compass has not been included. Most of the approaches included in this mission pack require a very specific route to the airfield and cannot be executed by using a simple arrow point.
