From my Cirrus pilots’ bulletin board, this delightful video, from professional pilot and flight instructor Caitlin Farley, of an approach to the Mountain Air airport in North Carolina in a Cirrus SR-22, the same kind of airplane I fly.
Aviators will appreciate the precision of this landing on a relatively short runway at a relatively high altitude. (2900-foot runway x 50 feet wide, at 4400 feet above sea level, nose wheel touching down a few inches to the right of the center line.) For the general public, I think this brief video gives a nice sense of the 3-D swimming-through-air sensibility involved in flying, and particularly in the approach to an airport. The right-hand turn to bring the runway into view happens about 30 seconds in. Enjoy.
