It is indeed a great airport. The issue is with recent training flights which have not been allowed to do touch and go/roller landings. P-8/A400/C-130/C-17 traffic have been told this by ATC. I would imagine the runway is in dire need of a resurface and a training flight putting holes in the runway would upset the remaining scheduled traffic movements which the airport will prioritise. I was watching an A400 doing touch and go landings elsewhere yesterday. Glad you are visiting PIK. Long may you do so.
