The descent and landing phases of every flight are particularly important, so the AOPA Air Safety Foundation created The Last Five Miles Safety Seminar to provide pilots with techniques to make that final stretch safe and enjoyable.
The must-see seminar provides practical tips about how to make this critical phase of flight safe. So far, nearly 6,000 attendees have learned three reasons why pilots should descend early (and one instance in which that would be a mistake), when a straight-in approach can be safe and legal, and how to safely handle traffic pattern conflicts.
"[The instructor] gave me so much to think about, I am still thinking about all the good stuff he told us," wrote one attendee. "These safety seminars are the best!"
The free seminar is in full swing through November. Visit the AOPA Online Safety Center for a complete schedule.
