Cessna 152 Training – Glide Approaches into Stellenbosch Airfield (FASH)

October 30, 2010

Here I am training at Stellenbosch Airfield on 17/06/2010. As mentioned in the title, these are glide approaches (simulated forced landings) and is the reason for the high approach and short base to final turns. The first glide approach that i did was too high and i was forced to do a go around (was getting the feel for not being dependent on power). I must apologize for the video quality. I recorded this with my mobile phone and due to the recording rate of the camera, the propeller looks ‘wavy’ but i assure you it’s just an illusion and not experimenting with a ‘bendy’ propeller. Details: Airport: (FASH) Stellenbosh, Western Cape, South Africa Aircraft: Cessna 152 Song: Nick Holder – Summer Daze Student: Matthew Loughton Feel free to comment and ask questions 🙂

    Nice video. I love the Helderberg and will be there in November. I am doing PPL in UK and maybe I will arrange a flight while I am there and see the scenery from above for myself.
