Chapter 1. Conventional Practice: The Actual Flight Path Angle

We compare the the actual flight path angle with the usual depiction and explain why the concept of using height as a judgement for commencing a flare is flawed, mathematically.

Discover how to improve your touch-down point accuracy; and why even the slightest misjudgments of flare commencement height compound into twenty-times larger longitudinal errors along the runway. Compare this with the concept of using a longitudinal flare cue, where any error is diminished twenty times, in terms of vertical height.
