What is a long landing?

The long landing the aircraft made, reduced the remaining distance too much to stop the aircraft on the runway. Touchdowns of more than 600-700 m from the threshold are typically considered long landings. However there is no formal definition of what a long landing is.

How do pilots land planes?

Large aircraft In large transport category (airliner) aircraft, pilots land the aircraft by "flying the airplane on to the runway." The airspeed and attitude of the plane are adjusted for landing. A flare is performed just before landing, and the descent rate is significantly reduced, causing a light touch down.

What's it called when a plane turns?

Imagine three lines running through an airplane and intersecting at right angles at the airplane's center of gravity. Rotation around the front-to-back axis is called roll. Rotation around the side-to-side axis is called pitch. Rotation around the vertical axis is called yaw.

How do I listen to ATC frequencies?

To listen to your local air traffic control, you'll need to obtain a radio scanner that's capable of receiving frequencies between 118.0 and 136.975 MHz. Then, go on sites like skyvector.com to find an aeronautical sectional chart of your local area.

What frequencies do airplanes use?

Common Civilian Frequencies In the US the civil aircraft communications band (118-137 MHz) generally uses 25 kHz spaced channels. As of 2010 aeronautical enroute and flight test stations may use 8.33 kHz spaced channels in the 121.4-123.6, 128.825-132.0 and 136.5-136.875 MHz ranges.
