Before I start: I know there are some simular topics regarding low visibility landings. They are very general though. This topic is specifically about manual landings without any usage of autopilot and APPR.
I love challenging flights. One of the most challenging things for me is to land manually at zero visibility (and if possible some strong winds).
After some training I’m able to land by now even though there is no visibility. The problem: The approach still isn’t very beautiful.
I can’t get myself stabilized on the runway indicator and glidescope if I don’t have any visual orientation yet. I think it’s all about training, but maybe you guys know some things that could help here. I already try to use my flight plan as an additional landing guidance, still it’s not very helpful.
This is how my manual approach with the A320 looked in Philadelphia today. Visibility: 1/4sm
