Sunny Swift 23: Stabilized approaches

Dear Sunny's followers,

Most accidents happen during the approach for landing. This part of the flight can be made safer by applied stabilized approach criteria that is common in airline operations. For General Aviation this means that the pilot establishes and maintains a constant angle glide-path towards the runway at a height of 500 ft at 1.5 NM or 2.8 KM from the runway threshold. In many cases, local conditions at the aerodrome don’t allow for an extended centerline. This means it is important to have dialogue with the local community to highlight both the noise and safety benefits that this will bring.

Happy landings!
