I wrote up a landing procedure for my squadron that is meant for the La-5, but that is general enough to be useful to everyone, especially to other squadrons who return from a mission together. Since this list is meant for the La-5, for some aircraft the values of airspeed, rpm, etc. will vary.

<LI>Enter the airstrip landing pattern at the assigned altitude, making sure to follow your wing element if possible. Default altitude is 500-700 m above the runway altitude. Trim the airplane to fly a pattern airspeed of 240-270 kph. You must keep a sharp eye out for other aircraft.<LI>Follow the standard left landing pattern. This pattern consists of four legs in a rectangular arrangement. The legs are as follows: <UL TYPE=SQUARE> <LI>Crosswind leg: the leg which, if departing from the airstrip, is 90 degrees to the left <LI>Downwind leg: the leg parallel to the airstrip, at 90 degrees from the crosswind leg <LI>Base leg: the leg at 90 degrees from the downwind leg, preceding final. The airstrip should be visible from this leg. <LI>Final leg: the leg along which final approach is made. This pattern is pictured below; the legs may be longer than actually required. Note that the final leg can be flown without landing; you simply maintain the pattern altitude and airspeed. <LI>While in the landing pattern, make the following pre-landing check: <UL TYPE=SQUARE> <LI>Navigation lights are on<LI>Under poor visibility conditions, landing light is on<LI>Mixture is full rich (100%)<LI>Prop control at 90-100% (full rpm is 2200rpm)<LI>Coolant shutters are open[/list] <LI>Maintain radio silence. The only exceptions are to request landing clearance, report a go-around, or to warn of an emergency situation, such as imminent collisions and the arrival of unidentified aircraft. <LI>Request clearance to land using the radio. Requests can only be made shortly before entering the base leg and during the first half of the base leg. Only continue with the following procedures if clearance is granted. <LI>While on the base leg, check that your airspeed is less than 300 kph, and lower landing gear. Verify that they are extended by checking that the gear indicator lights are green. Adjust throttle and re-trim the aircraft to maintain altitude and 220-250 kph. <LI>Turn the landing light to the on position. <LI>While on the base leg, check that your airspeed is less than 300 kph, and lower landing gear. Verify that they are extended by checking that the gear indicator lights are green. Adjust throttle and re-trim the aircraft to maintain altitude and 220-250 kph. <LI> Make a smooth turn from the base leg onto the final leg. <LI>When gear are extended and airspeed is less than 250 kph, extend flaps to the full landing position. Re-trim and adjust throttle to enter a glide at an airspeed of 160-180 kph. <LI> Select an aim point just short of the end of the runway and make corrections to align the approach. <LI> If you are uncertain whether the runway is clear or that your approach is good, go around. <LI> Cut throttle and land. If you balloon or bounce, correct using throttle. If they are excessive, add full power and go around. <LI>Control your rollout using rudder and brakes. Use as little brakes as possible. Do not turn off the runway until the aircraft has slowed enough to be controllable.[/list]

Sorry, I was talking about the lists in my original posts. Why did they have to do away with the preview option? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I had read your message earlier but had to think of the reply and obviously I had to think long enough that I forgot to reply. Working on it now, thanks for the patient reminder. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
