unstabilised approach

An unstabilized approach is an approach during which an aircraft does not maintain at least one of the following variables :

  • stable speed
  • descent rate
  • vertical/lateral flight path and in landing configuration

or receive a landing clearance by a certain altitude.

Unstabilized approaches account for most approach and landing accidents. For this reason, an approach should be stabilized by 1,000 feet (305 m) above runway altitude. Otherwise, a go-around should be executed by the pilot.
