This week, Finnair Virtual welcomes a new segment, we’re introducing Landing Competitions! The objective is quite simple and straight forward. We’ll have a total of three judges base the quality of landings performed by the pilots competing. Whichever pilot receives the highest score out of ten, they win.
Pilots will spawn in at their assigned gate and wait for the judges to announce the beginning of the landing competition. All pilots will takeoff and form in a full 10nm pattern at the designated runway. We recommend around 3-5nm of spacing in between aircraft.
Pattern Speed: 210kts
Pattern Altitude: 1000ft AGL
Once you’ve landed, please expedite your exit of the runway to provide maximum efficiency
The scoring of the pilots’ landings will be based on many factors. Judges will be scoring pilots’ on their smoothness, centerline, and flare technique.
Results will be released one day after the competition. The winner will be rewarded five bonus flight hours and will be featured on a landing competition montage video.
Aircraft: Airbus A321 (Finnair)
Airport: EFHK - Helsinki Airport
