FMA

Check FINAL APP

GO AROUND ALTITUDE SETTING


A/THR..CHECK SPEED MODE POSITION/FLIGHT PATHMONITOR

Monitor VDEV , FPV on PFD and XTK error (on the ND).

V-DEV XTK

Use altitude indication versus distance to the runway to monitor the vertical navigation.

FPV

If the vertical guidance is unsatisfactory, revert to FPA NAV or consider the go-around. FPA If the lateral guidance is unsatisfactory, perform a go-around.
