Carrying out a slow powered approach/ landing to an unfamiliar field also known as a precautionary search and landing
A precautionary search is finding a piece of land suitable for landing, and flying a number of circuit passes around the selected landing area to perform a series of suitability checks
A pilot may be faced with the decision to carry out this procedure for a number of reasons. These may include: suspected engine or airframe problems, a sudden deterioration in weather, low on fuel. ———————————————————————————
The International Ninety-Nines’ Compass Rose logo and monogram was designed by Los Angeles chapter member Wilma Fritschey in 1939, and is still used today. Santa Monica Airport’s Compass Rose is a directional piece of navigation used by pilots with both historical and functional significance. We are raising money in support of both roles.
Help us meet our 2018 Compass Rose Preservation Fundraising Goal to keep it a part of aviation history and a piece of functional art by donating now.

we don’t call it beautiful british columbia for no reason
couldn’t have asked for a better day for flying
🌈🛩 Didn’t find my pot of gold but there’s something so magical about rainbows, especially from up above!
One of the best things about aviation are the unexpectedly amazing views you get to experience. Hoping one day I’ll get to see a ‘pilots glory’ 🤞🏼

Linetraining day. Will never forget the first day I flew the 737. Was such a bizarre feeling but absolutely lovely.
