Cessna Citation Encore Cabin, Cockpit, and Landing


Flying the Cessna Citation into St. Louis. This is an early morning arrival and landing of a Citation Encore at Spirit of St Louis Airport (KSUS). The vast majority of St. Louis bound general aviation aircraft land at the Spirit Airport. We’re flying a visual approach and landing on runway 26L with a left base turn to final. The video starts with an interior view of the main entry door and the passenger cabin area. In the cockpit I point out the visual reference we use to set the seat position before the flight. By lining up the orange and white reference balls the pilots set the seat position so that their eyes are in approximately the same position every flight. This is done in order to ensure that the sight picture through the forward windshield is always the same for visually adjusting the aircraft attitude for landing. Our landing was uneventful. Unfortunately, a Cessna 210 that was landing after us, made a gear up landing. After picking up our passengers we pass the disabled aircraft as we taxi to the smaller runway.

A Cessna Citation Encore Landing Scott Air Force Base


A Cessna Citation CE-560 passes low over a train during a training flight. We were doing multiple practice approaches at Scott Air Force Base in preparation for a type ride with the FAA. Scott is a joint use base with the the Air Force on one side and general aviation businesses on the other. This approach was an ILS to runway 32R with a 200 foot decision height. We got the minimums call(200′) as we passed over the train. If you fly, be safe. If you don’t, call your local airport and sign up for an introductory flying lesson.
