Faulty Approaches Episode 4: Crosswind Considerations (Large/720P)

play
2011-07-08 Length: 11s
UND CFIs Mike Lents and Anthony Bottini round off the last part of the four part series: "Faulty Approaches and Landings." This final episode discusses numerous hazards that can threaten an otherwise solid approach when a crosswind condition is present. Since most approaches and landings are executed during some kind of crosswind situation, it is advised that each pilot use this episode to review crosswind landing techniques to really hone their crosswind skills and hopefully avoid crosswind hazards such as touching down in a crab, the dreaded ground-loop and/or experiencing a wing rise after touchdown. We hope you've enjoyed this four part series. Let us know what you thought by sending our UND AeroCast staff an email at undaerocast@aero.und.edu and stay tuned for a bunch of future episodes. By the way, as usual, a huge thanks goes out this time to Timothy and Bret for sending us some truly stunning fan photos. Thanks fellas!…

2010-05-03 Length: 14s
As a recent addition to the FAA Airplane Flying Handbook, UND Aerospace has decided to tackle the Faulty Approach and Landing on this episode of the UND AeroCast. This episode is meant to shed some light on that grey area during many approaches when the pilot has to decide, based on the airplane's current state, if the approach can safely continue with minor corrections or if its time to call an unstable approach and go around. UND Aerospace CFI, Anthony Bottini uses an in-depth script written by UND CFI Mike Lents to outline various factors that could cause any approach to be considered Faulty. As the first episode in a four part series, the instruction will be geared towards faulty approach concepts that involve the pilot's Energy Management skills. As always the UND AeroCast staff would like to thank our latest Fan Photo contributor, Rachel Fish, for her photos of the UND Piper Cub with floats. Stay tuned for episode number two!…
