NEW: TJF App Version 2.0.6 with new Appendix G: Clear to Land

NEW: TJF App Version 2.0.6 with new Appendix G: Clear to Land

NEW: TJF App Version 2.0.6 – with new Appendix G: Clear to Land – released 23 December 2021

In early 2021, while delivering a JF training package in Brisbane, Australia, for yet another flight training organisation – FlightScope Aviation – a highly experienced instructor asked, “Have you considered adding a new section in the App, containing the accurate phraseology and useful pointers, including the ‘patter‘, that we just applied today?”

In July, we announced we that we had decided to add a new Appendix G to the JF app, which would highlight many practical tips, together with key terms and phrases, all designed to emphasise and achieve the vital application of the Jacobson Flare in the real world.

On 23 December 2021, we released the new Version 2.0.6 of the Jacobson Flare and we’ve titled the new Appendix G – ‘Clear to Land‘ – or ‘How to Apply the Jacobson Flare in the Real World‘.

It comprises distilled insights for all pilots and flight instructors straight from the most reliable source – the originator, researcher and developer of the Jacobson Flare – Captain David Jacobson FRAeS MAP.

The content in this appendix is necessarily limited to 10 pages – it does assume a thorough comprehension of the Jacobson Flare – but it should serve to direct the reader to, and to supplement, the expanded material for each topic, contained within the JF App Treatise. It offers phrases, cautions and JF-specific flight instructor ‘patter‘, developed by the author and others – over the last 36 years – that flight instructors may find useful as they develop experience in teaching the Jacobson Flare.

It is designed to highlight the practical, real-world application of the Jacobson Flare, by attempting to engage with the reader as if side-by-side in a cockpit, somewhere.

For we are all learners, doers and teachers

However, this update to V2.0.6 is more than just the addition of a new appendix. We’ve tidied up some unnecessary page duplications (to optimise space), fixed some bugs and made provision for a future Index – in addition to the wide-ranging Contents pages. We plan to release that update during early-mid 2022.

So trash the old Version 2.0.5 (356 pages) and download the NEW Version 2.0.6 (now 345 pages, despite the additional content) to take full advantage of the author’s 36-years’ experience in explaining and instructing his original Jacobson Flare – the world’s first and only universal, quantifiable, reliable and unassailable approach and landing training technique for all fixed-wing pilots.


Wishing you many safe landings
