Over the last 10 years, Canadian Xpress has visited some of the most amazing airports around the world and Paro is no exception. This flight is one of the most enjoyable and challenging fly-in events we have ever done.
This month we are Returning to an event from November of 2012 and revisiting Paro, Bhutan.
Paro Airport is the only international airport in Bhutan. The airport is located 4 miles from Paro in a deep valley on the bank of the river Paro Chhu. With surrounding peaks as high as 18,000 ft it is considered one of the world's most challenging airports. As of October 2009, only eight pilots in the world were certified to land at the airport.
