approach speed

approach speed

The recommended speed provided in aircraft manuals used by pilots when making an approach to land. This speed will vary for different segments of an approach as well as for the aircraft weight and configuration.

Max gear/ flap speed was 240 KIAS, and they just zipped around on approach at 240 right up to glideslope intercept, dirtied up the "sugar rocket" set power to hold the eventual final approach speed and slid down the glideslope as speed bled off to the final value just before power reduction for landing.
I show pilots a known set of airplane conditions, so called "by-the-numbers" flying tailored to their individual aircraft: power setting, flap position, gear position, attitude and trim setting that result in desirable flight performance for maneuvering in level flight at approach speed, transitioning to precision approach descent, transition to non-precision approach descent, intermediate level-off or level-off at minimum descent altitude, and transition to missed approach.
The barrier is closed as a function of the permissible approach speed.
Trains coming to the station will reduce their approach speed from 10 miles per hour to 5 miles per hour for safety, NJ Transit Executive Director (http://bigstory.
According to flight tracking website flightradar24, the 13-year-old Boeing 777-300 came in to landing at a speed of 155 knots (287 kilometres), slightly higher than Boeing's recommended 149 knots approach speed.
Under the first, drivers only knew the approach speed and distance to the stop (that is, internal information).
As expected, the approach speed did not have an effect on the measured tack value.
It features an innovative dual-speed proportional valve for pneumatic pressure control, allowing the user to program individual settings for initial part approach speed, contact pressure, weld pressure, and cooling pressure in pass code protected memory.
The pilots failed to notice their approach speed dropping.
The Falcon 5X is expected to have a balanced field length of about 5,250 feet/1600 meters (MTOW, ISA, SL) and an approach speed of about 105 kts at typical landing weight.
Inscribed circle radius, splitter island width and circulating roadway width are the variables of each scenario respectively, while traffic flow, approach speed and time gap are imposed as parameters for each scenario.
We lowered our landing gear at seven miles, noting that our approach speed would be roughly 10 knots faster because we were making a half-flap approach.
