We had to decide shortly before landing to deal with a bit of a crosswind while fighting asymmetric flaps or take a 2,000 foot shorter landing distance
Once the the expedition was within landing distance
of the shore, two "Zodiac" landings took place every day.
Broughton''s declared available landing distance
for the shorter runway 04 approach is 1,663m (5,460ft).
at typical landing weight has been reduced to 2,315 feet (705 m), from 2,600 feet (792 m); approach speed, to 107 knots; and balanced field length, to 4,325 feet (1,318 m).
They ask for the CAA to publish a clearer definition of a 'contaminated runway' and to develop a system for measuring snow that enables pilots to determine the landing distance
Another recommendation is that the CAA develop a clearer system of measuring snow that provides accurate and timely runway contamination information to enable pilots to determine the landing distance
This subjective test is worthy of consideration since the stroke force affects the initial speed, and the initial angle affects the landing distance
It also allows for in-flight operational landing distance
assessment during landing preparation.
An effective way to reduce the landing distance
of an aircraft is to reverse the direction of the exhaust gas stream.
Major Means calculated the no-flap approach speed and landing distance
, which determined that a visual pattern and landing provided the most runway available for a landing rollout maneuver.
The dry runway landing distance
over a 50 foot obstacle with no wind was determined to be about 1,400 feet for an aircraft weight of 4,000 pounds.
One bunker on the right and two on the left have been strategically placed at the side of the fairway at the landing distance
of most of the big-hitting professionals.
