Landing Judges:

For this event, two judges will be required. It is important that they take into account the following parameters in order to grade each participant’s landing:

  • Stability of the final approach : Steep banking or sudden pitch changes shall decrease the score.

  • Flare quality: A five degree flare is desired.

  • Touchdown smoothness and position : Touchdown on the landing aiming point and on the center line.

  • Landing speed and procedures: The final approach speed should be between 130-140 kts. Correct use of spoilers, aircraft lights and thrust reversers.

    NO AUTOLAND

Important! An individual score will be assigned for each of the aforementioned components in a scale of 0 to 10 points. The final score is the result of adding up each component score.

Both judges will spawn at KSAN 30 minutes after the event’s starting time and will position themselves like this:

Judge 1:

Using the drone / free cam, aim at Rwy 27 threshold.

Judge 2:

Set tower view

Just realized that I use 124 knots as my approach speed for the A318, apparently that’s too slow.


Reserve a gate for me, I might be able to come.

Hope you can make it

You might want to take a new pic on that flightplan, the VOR’s are invisibile on that pic you have there.

How can I take part?
What do I have to do?

Now that you mention that, I should have specified that on the main thread. Start the descent around 90nm away from KSAN at no less than - 2,000 ft /m. Do not exceed 290 KIAS till 10,000 ft.

If you can access the expert server, you’re welcome to take part. Just choose an available gate and let me know.

I’ll join :) 21A

Reserve 27 for me. I may come

I might come, it looks nice!

@Lin_Yifan I may be late by like 15 mins but I will try to catch you guys up.
