Landing - Short Field or Obstacle

Short Field or Obstacle Landing procedure is the same as for Normal Landing procedure, with the following additions.
  • Approach airspeed: 60 mph.
  • Use throttle to control the rate of descent.
    Warning: A relatively high rate of descent is possible in this configuration when at full gross weight and the throttle closed. If airspeed is allowed to decrease below the approach speeds shown, landing flare can only be assured with an application of power.
  • Slip aircraft as necessary to increase rate of descent.
  • Touchdown in full stall three-point attitude with stick full back.
  • Brake as required.
    Warning: As speed decreases, braking must be moderated to prevent possible nose-over.

How to use this demo page...

If you add a query string to the URL in the browser, you can display the speeds in different units. For example, add &unit_speed=mph to display the units in miles per hour. Alternatively, use the links below.

You can also adjust the rounding, by adding a fidelity query string to the URL. For example, &fidelity=0.000 will change the rounding to three decimal points.
