Flashcards in SOPM Deck (2):
What is the criteria for a stabilized approach?
By 1000 ft HAT
-Aircraft must be aligned with the centerline.
-Aircraft must be established on final approach course
(For VMC cirle-to-land maneuver, must be aligned by 500 ft)
For visual or VFR approach
- Aircraft within 5 degrees of centerline
- heading within 30 degrees
-Proper sink rate for glide path
-No more than 1000 ft per min descent unless operational limitations (tw, > 3 degree gp, abnormal AC config.
-Airspeed = Vref -0 + 10
-Thrust lever above idle.
-Minor fluctuations prior to 500, state correcting.
