Landing Made Easy If you want to land a Cessna 150 at Sonoma SkyPark airport, this is the manual for you. This manual will show you how to land safely and easily. Materials: The basic materials in the process of landing are the airplane and the airport. In order to unsure success the airplane and the airport should be up to FAA standards. For this manual we will assume that the airport and airplane are both up to FAA standards and in good working order. There are some things that you should know about the airport you want to land at. What is the runway(s) in use? Does it have a control tower? What is the radio frequency? What is the elevation pattern elevation? Sonoma Sky Park’s information is: runway 26 non-controlled 122.8 20 ft 1000 ft Operating Procedure: 1) To find out which runway is in use, you should listen to the radio. If there are other airplanes landing at the airport they should be talking on the radio and saying what they are doing. If you dont hear anybody you may have to ask if anybody knows the runway in use, or you may have to fly over the airport a figure out by yourself which runway would be the proper landing runway, factoring in the wind. 2) After you find out what runway you should land at you should tell everyone what you want to do using the radio. Basically you just say whom you are, where you are now, and what you want to do. i.e.- Sonoma SkyPark traffic this is Cessna 2952J Entering left downwind runway 26 Sonoma SkyPark 3) Now that you know what you want to do and you told anybody that was listening to the radio what you want to do, the next step is doing it. The traffic pattern is set up to make the airplanes flow through the process of landing and taking off in a smooth safe process. 4) To enter the pattern the 45 is used. The 45 is the path that is 45* using the downwind as a zero. The 45 then transitions in to the downwind, which is perpendicular with the runway.
