Hi all, again newbie here but wanted to see if anyone had any advice on how to do a glide scope approach to KSFO on 1R/L with respect to the high terrain. Was flying the A321 at the time. (Sidebar: I’m still not that great on crosswind landings and the day I was flying 1R/L was the only “green” runway.)
I tried searching this topic but didn’t have much luck. Thanks, and appreciate everyone’s insight.
Hey! If u want a perfect approach, nothing beats the charts. They can be a bit confusing to read in the beginning, but after 15 mins on YouTube, you should be good. The other day, I did an approach into Aspen, and the charts brought me perfectly down through valleys and over peaks with a lot of clearance on all sides of the a/c, right down until the steep final. So yea, I highly recommend charts…Google SFO 01L/R charts, and ur done :)
Here’s a very good tutorial for charts in the community, but I think the visuals given on YouTube make it easier to understand 😀
