The Landing Pilot is the Non-Handling Pilot until the decision altitude call, when the Handling Non-Landing Pilot hands the handling to the Non-Handling Landing Pilot
Welcome to the blog post with the longest title on the Internet. If you can find a blog post with a longer title I will give you 6 shillings.
Today I am going to share with you a mistake that many so called “experts” make when they write on the net.
The mistake is to over complicate the way they say things, in a poor attempt to sound more knowledgeable than they really are.
The fact of the matter is that people don’t want to be spoken down to or patronized (patronize means to speak down to someone)
People just want plain talking, straight shooting advice.
So with that in mind, I would like to share with you an excerpt from the 1996 British Airways Memorandum.
â€œThe Landing Pilot is the Non-Handling Pilot until the decision altitude call, when the Handling Non-Landing Pilot hands the handling to the Non-Handling Landing Pilot, unless the latter â€œcalls go around,â€ in which case the Handling Non-Landing Pilot continues handling and the Non-Handling Landing Pilot continues non-handling until the next call of â€œlandâ€ or â€œgo aroundâ€ as appropriate.
In view of recent confusions over these rules, it was deemed necessary to restate them clearly.â€
Holy crap! I wonder how confusing it was BEFORE they edited it???
So I leave you with jus 4 simple letters: K I S S (Keep It Simple Stupid)
