ON LANDINGSPart I
-
Being a
safe
pilot
means
combining
your working
knowledge of
aviation
with
current
skillsandexperience-tempered
by
good judgment.One important
phase
of flying skill is
the
landing.Landing
phase
accidentsare
responsible
for
nearly
half of all
general
aviation accidents.
By fortifyingyour knowledge of
the
"whys" and"wherefores"
of
approach and
landing accidents,
you
can
become
asafer pilot.In this
handout
we'll look
at
undershooting
and
cross
control
stalls-the
kinds
of
accidents
which
canhap
pen
before
you
reach the
runway. Also, we'll look at
hard
landings,
porpoising,
and
loss
of
directional
control-problems
encountered
after
reaching
the
runway.
THE
UNDERSHOOT
At
one
time
or another
everyone
of us
has
mis
calculated
an approach
and
started
to
undershoot
the
runway. It's
hard
to forget
that
"sinking"
feeling you
had
when you first realized
that
the
airplane might
not
make
the
runway.
Poor
patterntechniques such
as
flying
too
wide a
pattern
on downwind, or
making
a
late turn
to
base
___ leg
are
frequent
causes
of
undershooting.

Some
pilots
succumb
to
"runway
fixation"
and
un
consciously
try to
"carry"
the
airplane
up to
the
land
ing
spot
by
easing the
nose
up
without adding
power-this
doesn't
work very well.You
can
help
set
up a
proper and constant
distance
from
the
runway
for
all
airports
by
placing
the
runwaycenterline
at
a specific
point
on
the
leading
edge
of
the
wing (low wing
airplane)
or a
point along
the
strut
(high wing
airplane).
You
may
even
put
a
mark
orpiece of
tape
at
the
proper
wing
strut
position.
S ~
Using
the
runway
centerline
as
your
guide
takes care
of wide
or
narrow
runways.
(Of
course,
this
reference
line
or
point
only
works
when
the
wings
are
level.)
