Glideslope

Recommended Posts

Dear pilots![sorry about my english grammar, i dont speak very good]My question:I fly on the ils glideslope, but without the autopilot, i follow the glideslope manually. But when you start to flare and land, so i follow the glideslop until about 200 feet, but how many feet is good and usually?Ohh, sorry, but i hope you understand :SRegardsDavid KatonaHungary

Assuming it's not an autoland I disengage the autopilot no later than 400 feet and flare at about 50 feet coming over the threshold. Make sure you don't flare too early or you risk floating a long way down the runway.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
