La Aurora I

Volume:70 (download)
Airport:La Aurora I
Country:Guatemala
STAR:Yes
Description: There's only a small window of opportunity between the mountain (port side) and the airport (starboard) to make this approach into La Aurora International Airport (MGGT). This is a fine example of how the autopilot is an asset up to the turn, but rather a liability thereafter. Shut down the autopilot after the turn and fly manually to gain greater aircraft control. Expect a 9837ft concrete runway on an elevation of 4952ft.
