Flughafeninformationen

Deutsch
Samedan ist der offizielle Flugplatz von St. Moritz in den Schweizer Alpen. Er ist zudem auch der höchstgelegene Flugplatz Europas und bietet dank seiner langen Bahn auch Platz für Flugzeuge wie Gulfstream V und Boeing Businessjet.
Aufgrund seiner Lage inmitten eines Tals, das von hohen Bergen umgeben ist, existiert kein Instrumentenanflugverfahren. Man kann Samedan also nur nach Sicht anfliegen und Instrumentenflieger müssen spätestens über Samedan den IFR-Flugplan schliessen und nach VFR landen.

Beliebte Punkte für Inbounds (IFR Cancelling) sind: ABESI, CANNE, KUDES, GERSA, GUGSA, MALUS, RESIA, RONAK und SUXAN

Beliebte Punkte für Outbounds (IFR Pickup) sind: ELMUR, GIGGI, GUGSA, KELIP (LSZH), ODINA und RESIA

Insofern ist der Flugplatz anspruchsvoll, weil man die Gegend kennen sollte und auch das Wetter mitspielen muss. Vorbereitung ist also sehr wichtig!

English
Samedan is the official airport of St.Moritz in the Swiss Alps. Furthermore, it is the highest-located airport in Europe and offers place for aircraft such as the Gulfstream V or the Boeing Businessjet due to its rather long runway.
Due to its location in the middle of the valley surrounded by high mountains, no ILS approach exists. Samedan can only be approached visually and IFR traffic has to close its flightplan and land as VFR traffic.

Popular waypoint for inbounds (IFR Cancelling) are: ABESI, CANNE, KUDES, GERSA, GUGSA, MALUS, RESIA, RONAK und SUXAN

Popular waypoints for outbounds (IFR Pickup) are: ELMUR, GIGGI, GUGSA, KELIP (LSZH), ODINA und RESIA

Thus, the airport is challenging, because the pilot should be familiar with the region and the weather must be in one's favour. Preparation is key!
