GA Safety: Landing Issues

The CAA have reported that around 70% of the GA unit’s Occurrence Reports covering May and June have involved some sort of landing difficulty.

While a few incidents have been airworthiness-related — problems lowering the landing gear or it collapsing — most have been down to pilot error, although right now ‘rustiness’ is probably a fairer way to put it.

In response they have published CAP 1950, which raises awareness and provides advice to Pilots.
