Chapter 1. Conventional Practice 

The Actual Flight Path Angle

Description

App Chapter Slide

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.
