GA Joint Steering Committee Topic of the Month – Stabilized Approach and Go Around

July 28, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

The air carrier industry has embraced stabilized approach concepts as a means to ensure safe operations during critical phases of flight. Airline flight crews are trained and tested on establishing and maintaining stabilized approaches and to immediately initiate a go-around if stabilized approach criteria are not met. This has led to a dramatic decrease in approach and landing mishaps. General aviation pilots can also increase the safety of their approach and landing operations by adhering to stabilized approach criteria. At this outreach, FAASTeam Representative Terry Connorton will discuss:

  • The magnitude of approach and landing mishaps.
  • The benefits of stabilized approach and landing operations.
  • Best practices for exercising the go-around option.

We will also encourage pilots to make stabilized approaches and to go around if stabilized approach criteria are not met.

There is no cost to attend, but you must pre-register. Attendees are eligible to earn 1 credit for Basic Knowledge Topic 3 in the FAA WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program.
