## What should my approach speed be?

Most aircraft flight manuals recommend a speed. However, if your manufacturer doesn’t list a final speed in their flight manual, the FAA recommends that you fly 1.3 x Vso (stall speed in a landing configuration). For a couple examples, the C172S POH recommends 60-70 knots with full flaps for a final approach speed.

### What is V approach speed?

In aviation, V-speeds are standard terms used to define airspeeds important or useful to the operation of all aircraft. These are the stalling speeds for the aircraft at its maximum weight.

How do you calculate approach speed with gust?

When you’re dealing with a gusty day, the FAA recommends that you add half the gust factor to your final approach speed. For example, if the winds are reported at 18 knots, gusting 30 knots, it means you have a gust factor of 12 knots (30-18 = 12). So if you take half the gust factor, you get 6 knots (12/2 = 6).

What is an LPV approach?

Localiser Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) is defined as an Approach with Vertical Guidance (APV); that is, an instrument approach based on a navigation system that is not required to meet the precision approach standards of ICAO Annex 10 but that provides both course and glidepath deviation information.

## What is a Category 1 approach?

“Category I (CAT I) operation” means a precision instrument approach and landing with a decision height not lower than 200 f. Page 1. “Category I (CAT I) operation” means a precision instrument approach and landing with a. decision height not lower than 200 feet (60 meters) and with either a visibility of not less than.

### What is the safe system approach?

The Safe System Approach to road safety is a holistic view which provides a framework to assess, guide and improve travel safety. At the core of this is the need for responsibility for reducing risk to be shared by road users and those who design, maintain and operate all parts of the road transport system.

What are the wind additives for approach speed?

Boeing analysis and piloted simulation study supports reduction of the maximum approach speed wind additive from +20 knots to +15 knots. Applies to normal & non-normal operations. Flight Crew Training Manual will be updated in the June 2018 Revision to reflect the new 15 knot maximum wind additive change.

Can a plane fly without a wind additive?

On a gusty wind day, flying an approach speed without a wind additive risks running out of flying speed prior to the landing flare. Your only options may be to add to your approach speed or to divert. An additive may be required, recommended, forbidden, or not mentioned at all.

## When do you get rid of wind additives?

Rather than tackle all the variables, let’s look at a hypothetical situation and apply three techniques: no additive, an additive which we get rid of at 100 feet, or an additive we keep until the runway threshold. We don’t need to be afraid of the wind nor do we have to trust it will behave as we expect.

### What should the bleedoff 1n wind additive be?

As the airplane descends to the runway some bleedoff 1n airspeed should be expected. As noted below the 1/2 V WINSD addition should not exceed 20 knots. The curves in Fig. 3 indicate that a considerable wind gradient can be expected un1er certain conditions.
