AVIATOR90: A Good Landing Is A Good Landing


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.
