Approach and Landing
This work opens with an overview of Approach and Landing (AL) and its statistics. It covers early warning signs, the important practice of terrain study and adherence to approach procedures, and a review of aircraft and airport equipment that aid successful AL. It also includes flight case studies illustrating AL accidents induced by specific pilot errors, analyzing each case for pre-flight, in-flight, and post-flight lessons.
