July Safety Topic of the Month - Stablized Approach and Go Around
The outreach will emphasize the best practices regarding stabilized approaches and go around techniques.
Date and Time:
Sunday, July 28, 2019, starting at 14:00 Eastern Daylight Time Download Calendar File
FAASTeam Representative Terry Connorton
Brief Description:

The air carrier industry has embraced stabilized approach concepts as a means to ensure safe operations during critical phases of flight. Airline flight crews are trained and tested on establishing and maintaining stabilized approaches and to immediately initiate a go around if stabilized approach criteria are not met.  This has led to a dramatic decrease in approach and landing mishaps.  General aviation pilots can also increase the safety of their approach and landing operations by adhering to stabilized approach criteria.  At this outreach, we will discuss:

  • the magnitude of approach and landing mishaps
  • the benefits of stabilized approach and landing operations.
  • and best practices for exercising the go around option.

We will also encourage pilots to make stabilized approaches and to go around if stabilized approach criteria are not met.
