LSZH - Zurich (major airport)

(c) Picture by Tis Meyer

Zürich ist ohne Zweifel der bedeutenste Flughafen der Schweiz. Mit drei Start- und Landebahnen, die je nach Wind und Uhrzeit (siehe Preferential Runway System) genutzt werden.
Winterliche Nebellagen verlangen von Piloten die Fähigkeit, auch eine CAT II oder sogar eine CAT IIIb Landung hinzulegen. Das Alpenpanorama, welches man nach dem Start geniessen kann, sowie die verfügbaren, hochqualitativen Szenerien für den Flugsimulator setzen dem Flug noch das Sahnehäubchen auf.

Zurich is without doubt the most important airport in Switzerland. Depending on the wind and time of the day, different runway configurations are in use (see Preferential Runway System).
During winter months fog can become predominant and thus, pilots need to execute a CAT II or even a CAT IIIb landing. After departure, one can enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Alps and the high quality sceneries available for the different flight simulators add that little extra to your next flight into or out of Zurich.
