This is a description based on pictures of a landing under visual flight rules; the plane is the excellent Ercoupe LV-RJU owned by the company Delta Charlie S.R.L.
We begin the landing manoeuver five miles out of San Fernando International Airport (SADF), about twenty kilometres north of Buenos Aires; the first thing to do is to announce our arrival by calling "San Fernando, good day, this is Lima Victor Romeo Juliet Uniform, five miles north at one thousand feet, requesting instructions for landing."
Spring in Buenos Aires, flying with an open cockpit.
Now we see our instruments that are indicating that we approach SADF with a heading of 143 degrees, just a little higher than a thousand feet, passing laterally an NDB or non-directional radio beacon and with a speed of 94 MPH. A slight left correction is being applied with the double rudders to compensate for the wind, and we are beginning our approach at 12:30 UTC. After we contacted San Fernando tower for a VFR landing, they call us back "Romeo Juliet Uniform San Fernando good day, maintain one thousand and notify on initial, runway zero five in use, wind from four zero at ten knots, pressure one thousand and thirty"… and then we recall by saying "Juliet Uniform will be back on initial at zero five"
The correct parameters to initiate the landing procedure on a FO-2.
