Circuit and Landing Checks


  • Fuel – make sure enough fuel for a go-around if required
  • Altimeter – make sure that altimeter is set to QFE setting to ensure correct height
  • Windsock – make sure that you are landing on the correct runway that favours the wind direction
  • Nose wheel – make sure wheel is straight for landing
  • Throttle – make sure that hand throttle is off
  • Speed – make sure you are at correct speed for landing


Always listen to radio (if available) and keep a keen lookout for other aircraft, making sure you check final approach while you are on the base leg.
