Ground Proximity Warnings Are Standard At This Airport

A normal takeoff with ground proximity warnings isn't that normal. But this takeoff in a BAe 146 Avro isn't from a normal airport, either. The takeoff is from Bhutan's Paro Airport. With a field elevation of over 7,200 feet, and surrounding peaks of over 18,000 feet, it's considered one of the world's most challenging airports.
