Faulty Approaches and Landings Faulty Approaches and Landings
   The explanations of approaches and landings up to this point have been devoted mainly to normal situations, in which the landings were ideally executed. However, in addition to occasional errors in judgment during some part of the approach and landing, numerous variables such as traffic, wind shift, or wind gusts create situations requiring corrections or recoveries to assure a safe landing. Therefore, pilot skill in anticipation of, recognition of, and recovery from abnormal situations is equal in importance to normal approach and landing skills.
