Begin descent when the final controller advises that you are "on glidepath."
Reduce power to approximately 500 ftlbs and lower the nose to maintain 100 knots.
As a technique, if you lower the nose a number of degrees equal to the published
glidescope angle (normally 3º), you will approximate the descent rate required to
If informed by the final controller of glidepath deviations, make appropriate
corrections with coordinated pitch and power. Maintain 100 knots and continue to
comply with assigned headings.
At decision height (as determined by your altimeter or the controller advising you that
you are at decision height, whichever occurs first), if the runway environment is not in
sight or you are not in a position to make a safe landing, then execute the Missed
