Cockpit Chronicles: 737 cockpit video – takeoff and landing practice

by / Thursday, 30 April 2009 / Published in How to fly

Normally I do not film below 10,000 feet, but this was a training video, used by our check airman to evaluate the procedures used for future ‘bounces’.

See the blog post I wrote about this training video:

We call ’em ‘bounces.’ This video was taken in 1999 when we were required to perform some takeoff and landing practice in the actual airplane after we finished up our simulator training.

Our training airport was San Jose, CA with the touch and go landings at Sacramento. Airplane was a brand new 737-800.
