AVIATOR90: Many Pieces Of Flare

In aviation parlance the flare is the transition between an approach to a landing. There’s quite a bit more to it than cutting the power and pulling the yoke up in a semi-panic when the runway is approaching, which is what I usually do. In this week’s episode Chris Palmer from Angle of Attack explains the importance of a stable approach and the correct elements of a proper flare including using your peripheral vision.

AVIATOR90: A Good Landing Is A Good Landing

Capture

You’ve probably heard the joke that, “A good landing is any landing that you can walk away from.” In realty, landing an aircraft is a skill that with practice can be mastered and save you from costly wear and tear on your aircraft’s body (and your own.) In today’s episode Chris Palmer from Angle of Attack goes over the components of a good landing including approach speed and descent rate, keeping on track with the point target method, and the differences between a straight approach and a pattern approach.

Due to the restrictions on YouTube this week’s video is only viewable on the Angle of Attack website. It’s still free though.
