What is a roll on landing?
A roll-on landing is conducted under limited power conditions such as a single engine failure. The Pilot uses the thrust from the rotor system to slow the aircraft down instead of additional power from the engine. This technique is known as aerodynamic braking.

What is shallow approach?
A shallow approach is initiated in the same manner as the normal approach except that a shallower angle of descent is maintained. The power reduction to initiate the desired angle of descent is less than that for a normal approach since the angle of descent is less (position 1).
What is a Bedford Array?
The carrier was fitted with a visual landing aid called a “Bedford Array”, which provides glidepath information to the pilot through a helmet-mounted display.
What is landing distance required?
Required landing distance is the distance derived by applying a factor to the actual landing distance. Required landing distances are used for dispatch purposes (i.e., for selecting the destination airport and alternate airports).
What is the takeoff and landing distance over a 50-foot obstacle Cessna 172?
Landing distance: 445 FT. Takeoff distance over 50ft obstacle: 1,385 FT.
What is the distance to clear a 50 ft obstacle on a standard day?
Twenty degrees Celsius is almost exactly 70 degrees F, so your ground roll should be 1,176 feet, and you can clear a 50-foot obstacle in 1,813 feet, according to Cirrus.
Why do helicopters circle before landing?
The main reasons why helicopters circle overhead are to burn less fuel and stay on station longer, give the occupants the best view of the scene, and to keep the helicopter in a safe flight condition if the engine were to ever quit.
What is ground roll?
ground roll. i. The distance traveled by an aircraft from touchdown until either it turns off the runway or stops on the runway during landing. ii.
What is a landing roll in aviation?
Landing roll. landing roll. The distance from the point where an aircraft touches down on the runway to the point where the aircraft comes to a stop or can exit the runway.
What is a landlanding roll?
landing roll. The distance from the point where an aircraft touches down on the runway to the point where the aircraft comes to a stop or can exit the runway. landplane. An airplane with wheels that can land on land, as opposed to a floatplane or a skiplane.
What is the centerline offset of a ground roll?
EDIT: the centerline offset is the maximum deviation during the entire ground roll. So if you’re off by 1 foot when you touch down, then deviate to 5 feet, and end at 0 feet for example, the centerline offset would be 5 feet because that was the farthest you moved Thanks.
