We love airports that pose a challenge to the pilot. And let’s not kid ourselves, not try to be politically correct, let’s call them Dangerous Airports. Because they are. All the airports in this package have their own challenges and their own dangers. We can almost guarantee that your first approach to any of these airports will end up in a missed approach.
Barra Eoligarry Airport (EGPR) on the Outer Hebrides (Scotland) is just weird, it’s a beach, the only airport we know of that is open or closed depending on the tide. You land on sand that might be hard or soft, there might be tidal pool or washed up debris. It even has scheduled flights.
Matekane Air Strip (Lesotho) is located on a mountain top, pretty high and most of the year pretty hot so density altitude is a major factor. But when you run out of runway you can drop a few thousand feet before crashing into the river below. Used by the Flying Doctors it is a most bewildering air strip.
Mountain Air, Burnsville, North Carolina (2NC0) is also a mountain airport, but where Matekane has miles of nothing around it Mountain Air is cramped and you park almost on the runway. It also got a sloped runway and rather nasty gusts of wind most of the time. Getting the approach right is not easy.

Conclusion by Avsim.com: "This is not your average add-on. This scenery was not produced to be eye candy, even though it does have some nice detailing. It features airports and flying conditions that will test your skills, keep you thinking, and ultimately make you a better pilot through mastery of the techniques needed. If you tend to crash and burn as spectacularly as I did, it will humble you and make you aware that this flying business can be quite complicated and that you need to work at it to consistently get it right. The fact that it is titled Dangerous Airports 1 suggests rather strongly that Aerosoft will be producing at least one additional offering of this nature. The concept certainly has the potential to be an extensive series and I have little doubt that more will follow."
