Falcon 4 BMS Tutorial 20 : VFR Landing

Landing the F16 is a fundamentally simple process. You lower the landing gear, open the speedbrake, and place the Flight Path Marker on the runway threshold. As long as you maintain a slow enough approach speed the aircraft will touch down on the desired spot.

In this tutorial I explain the HUD symbology that will aid in landings. You will become familiar with the Angle Of Attack bracket and its relevant positions. And you will understand just what you should do once your wheels do touch down.

The approach was made with a significant crosswind component. This does complicate the approach phase, but even with significant buffeting at runway threshold it should become clear that with the appropriate corrections a crosswind should be respected, but not feared.
