Eddie Asks:

Is Your Landing Checklist Designed to Create an Unstable Approach?

April 1, 2020

How many steps in your landing (or before landing) checklist after you extend the landing gear?

(I heard one particular Hawker checklist has 16 steps AFTER the landing gear.) In the Gulfstream GIV there are five steps after the gear is extended. In the G500 (shown here), there are two. So we are getting better.



If your checklist keeps you busy that close to landing, what are your chances of flying a stable approach? How would you fix it? Please send Eddie (use the contact button) a copy of your checkist and how you would improve it.
