Palmer Station

Volume:61 (download)
Airport:Palmer Station
Country:Antartica
Description: Without doubt the best and safest way into Palmer Station (NZOB) is to enter from the seaboard side, but there's little skill in that, so we'll opt for runway 9. It'll be difficult to recognise the runway at first and your descent will be very steep and rapid. Airspeed management is critical on this approach - too fast and you'll slide to the other end of the runway and perhaps beyond. Expect a 2500ft snow runway on an elevation of 145ft. Have a good one.
