Abstract:

Automatic landing systems are likely to be in regular service during 1967, with civil airlines, but it will be some years before safe landings are being made in really low visibility conditions. The report summarises the present situation in the United Kingdom, with regard to all-weather landing, and makes suggestions to solve the problems that will arise. In particular, there is a need to study the role of the pilot during low visibility landings, and to provide the right airfield environment which will enable a safe automatic landing to be made in all weather conditions.
