Congonhas Airport, Sao Paulo, Brazil - At just 5 miles from the city center there is minimal room for error when landing and taking off.
Courchevel International Airport, Courchevel, France - This airstrip has a hill in the middle of it, making landing and taking off slightly more difficult.
Gibraltar Airport - Built before WWII, this airport is really small and cuts through traffic sometimes.
Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport, Saba, Netherlands Antilles - This runway is extremely short, at only 1,300 feet, there is no room for error or you could end up in the water.
