SXM| Princess Juliana International Airport Saint Maarten


St. Maarten, Dutch Caribbean


Princess Juliana International Aiport


Princess Juliana International Airport (IATA: SXM, ICAO: TNCM) (also known
as Saint Martin International Airport) serves the Dutch part of the island of
Saint Martin. In 2007, the airport handled 1,647,824 passengers and 103,650
aircraft movements.[2] The airport serves as a hub for Windward Islands
Airways and is the major gateway for the smaller Leeward Islands, including
Anguilla, Saba, St. Barthélemy and St. Eustatius. It is named after Juliana of
the Netherlands, who as crown princess landed here in 1944, the year after
the airport opened. There is also an airport on the French side of the island,
called Aéroport de Grand Case or L'Espérance Airport.

The airport is perhaps best known for very low-altitude flyover landing
approaches due to one end of its runway being extremely close to the shore
and Maho Beach.

St. Maarten is a plane spotters paradise


Warning signs are placed all over to warn air plane spotters of jet blasts.
Saint Maarten is in the top list of the World for having the most exciting landings and take offs.

SXM is still on my list for "the most challenging yet striking airport" and a must-see/visit airport. I wish I will be there someday

Adacel deploys ATC training systems at Princess Juliana International Airport in Caribbean

Air traffic management systems developer Adacel has deployed and tested the MaxSim tower simulation system and intelligent communications environment (ICE) training solutions at Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten, Caribbean.

The simulation system will provide aerodrome control training, while the ICE stations will assist wth aviation phraseology proficiency and communication procedures.



The Adacel systems will be incorporated into the St Maarten Civil Aviation Authority's air traffic control (ATC) training programme, and provide tools for air traffic controllers, who require new skills to meet the highest international standards.

St. Maarten joins Curacao and Trinidad in the Caribbean in a bid to improve controller training capabilities using the Adacel ATC simulation systems. The simulators have been proven to enhance proficiency and speed up the learning process of ATC controllers during their course of study, as well as operational training.

The systems provide realistic, hands-on lessons to ATC students across a range of topics, ranging from the basics of phraseology and communications through to advanced skills.

World famous Princess Juliana St Maarten Airport where planes fly just above tourists' heads devastated by Hurricane Irma

"St Marteen's world famous airport where planes fly just above tourists' heads has been devastated by Hurricane Irma.

The 185mph storm ripped through the airport as Hurricane Irma slammed into the Caribbean island earlier today.

The check-in lounge was submerged under water and walkways were left completely destroyed when the storm hit.

It left a trail of devastation as homes, hotels and government buildings have been reduced to rubble."

Wow! I'm very devastated about SXM airports. The SXM airport is totally destroyed by Hurricane Irma. I felt sorry for those people who lost home, churches, boat and a few other things, as well. They will be rebuilding.
