IFRidays - Faroe Islands

Every Friday evening, we get together on Discord and fly the big birds. IFRidays are an opportunity to practice your IFR skills as we fly in and out of beautiful airports with interesting departures and approaches.

This week's flight focuses on EKVG, Vagar Airport in the Fareo Islands. Vágar Airport (Faroese: Vága Floghavn) (IATA: FAE, ICAO: EKVG) is the only airport in the Faroe Islands and is located 2km east of Sørvágur.

The airport approach is challenging due to the hills surrounding it and regular wind gusts. It often sees a variety of A319/A320, B737, or BAe 146 aircraft with many of them flying there as charters besides the regular schedule.

Our departure will be EGPH, Edinburgh airport in Scotland.
