You see the planes taking off and landing all the time as you drive down Backus Avenue, Miry Brook Road, or when you’re heading to or leaving the Danbury Fair Mall, but what’s it look like to actually be inside a plane landing at Danbury Airport?

Danbury Airport is considered by many pilots to be one of the most challenging small Airports in the country to land. According to, obstacles include antenna towers and mountainous terrain. The Airport also sits in a valley that brings fog and wind sheer conditions. Pilots experience high terrain immediately south of the airport and obstructions close in on several approaches. The approach to the north requires flying through a gap in the hilltops, and the approach to the west features high terrain and light towers within 1/2 mile of the runway. To say it’s a piece of cake to land here would be an understatement.

So what’s it really like to land at one of the most challenging small airports in the country? Here’s your chance to find out from the view of the pilot.

Each of the videos below show the cockpit perspective of these three different runway landings — enjoy.
