  • Is steep approach quite normal for approach into Telluride ? In many strips around the world like in Columbia and Nepal, due steep approaches, you have to make a high rate of descent to reach your normal approach path profile. I flew such flights many times before. Now I fly an aircraft that needs more procedural flying. Gone are those exciting days.
