Continuous Descent Final Approach

Continuous Descent Final Approach
Non-precision approaches were not originally designed with a vertical path, but may easily be flown using a Continuous Descent Final Approach (CDFA) technique. Flying non-precision approaches with a continuous descent profile provides a safety advantage over flying approaches using the dive-and-drive technique. The Continuous Descent Final Approach highlights how to implement CDFA to incorporate the safety benefits derived from flying a continuous descent in a stabilized manner as a standard practice on a non-precision approach.

 

The module was designed to meet the training requirements for Ops Spec / C073 – Vertical Navigation (VNAV) Instrument Approach Procedures (IAP) Using Minimum Descent Altitude (MDA) as a Decision Altitude (DA)/Decision Height (DH) and FAA AC 120-108.
The module is not required by the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS‑BAO) or Business Aviation Safety Consortium (BASC) standard. Training is required if you are seeking or are issued Letter of Authorization C073 – Vertical Navigation (VNAV) Instrument Approach Procedures (IAP) Using Minimum Descent Altitude (MDA) as a Decision Altitude (DA)/Decision Height (DH). The module meets the training requirements of FAA AC 120-108.
