Luke Air Force Base has strongly supported the mission of the flight training community. On June 7th, General Todd Canterbury of Luke Air Force Base released updated policy on the use of the Aux-1 ILS. Please see this post for more information.
The General Aviation Steering Committee (GAJSC) work group contends that a unstable approaches and the disinclination of many pilots to go-around when an approach becomes unstable are precursors to many GA landing accidents.
Emphasizing stable approaches and making early go-around decisions are key to reducing landing accidents.
New procedures to help pilots more safely and efficiently practice Instrument approaches at Stanfield and Casa Grande Municipal Airport have been released by the AFTW.
New version posted on January 10th, 2019. Download your GPS overlay of the practice areas today and start using it in Foreflight and Garmin Pilot!
AFTW has released a letter addressing concerns about low-flying aircraft in the Northeast Practice Area. Please take some time to read this letter and do your part to be a good neighbor to those living around us.
