An analysis of recent worldwide landing overrun incidents reveals that an overrun is likely to be characterised by a fast, high approach with a prolonged 'float' and long touchdown onto a wet runway. The same study also shows that these incidents were by no means confined to landings onto 'limiting' runways.

The purpose of this Circular therefore is to review some of the basic principles of aeroplane landing performance, to enable the factors affecting the stopping capabilities of the aeroplane to be understood and to appreciate the operational considerations inherent in the Flight Manual performance data.

It is important to remember however, that this document is intended as a guide only. It must not be taken as qualifying in any way the effect of the regulations themselves.
