Crabbing into the wind

Recommended Posts

Forward slipping a transport category aircraft is not advised as an appropriate method for altitude loss. Non transport category aircraft may be able to do it, but, the emphasis in the transport category operational environment is on consistent and stabilized approach procedures that do not necessitate forward slips. If you find yourself in a position where a forward slip is necessary, that is considered an unstable approach and would mandate a go around.
