Improving your approach and landing skills in all kinds of conditions will make you a safer pilot. Based on content in the FAA’s Airplane Flying Handbook, this course offers a basic refresher on some of the knowledge and skills needed to make consistently good landings in a normal situation (e.g., power available, light winds, long and firm runway). It covers the five phases of a normal landing: base leg, final approach, round out, touchdown, and after-landing roll.
While this course provides basic information, there is no substitute for training and practice with a well-qualified instructor. In addition, you must always follow the procedures recommended in the specific Aircraft Flight Manual (AFM).
