Weekly Group Flight on 17/06/2016 (IFR)
Friday, June 17th 2016, 17:00z (20:00 LT) we will be flying IFR from Bucharest Henri Coanda (LROP) to Skiathos(LGSK).
At just 1,628 metres, the runway at Skiathos is considered very short for commercial jet operations. Some airlines require their pilots to undergo additional training before using the airport and require all landings to be performed by the captain. A further problem is the downslope on runway 20 which makes it appear even shorter than it is. The southern end cannot be seen from the touchdown point. Aircraft approaching from the opposite direction (runway 02) pass to the east of Skiathos town and over a coastal road just outside the airport boundary. Due to that the airport is famous for attraction for planespotters, and took the ninckname „2nd Saint Maartin „.
