A Cessna Citation 560 Landing Nashville and ATC traffic


A Cessna Citation Encore (CE560) makes a visual approach and landing to runway 2R at the Nashville International Airport (BNA). This early morning arrival into Nashville starts with a left downwind to runway 2R that takes us over the downtown area of the city. This can be a surprisingly busy airport. At times there are so many Southwest flights arriving and departing that you would think they owned this place. For student pilots this video has lots of ATC radio communications traffic as well as a good cockpit view of the landing.

Cessna Citation Encore TCAS and Landing


A Cessna Citation Encore takes off in the rain from the Nashville International Airport (BNA). On takeoff the windshield bleed valves are opened to blow the rain of off the windshield. This system routes hot bleed air from the engines to the windshield to remove ice or rain. During the cruise phase of the flight we look at the TCAS display on the MFD and see it’s indicating crossing traffic at 1,000 ft above us. Once we’re in the terminal area we do a visual approach and landing to runway 26L at Spirit of St. Louis Airport (KSUS). There’s lots of ATC radio traffic in the video and I tried to position the camera get more of the cockpit and instrument panel in the video.
