At a crossroads
As air traffic becomes more congested different but safe ways of making air traffic more efficient are introduced. One such method is Land and Hold Short Operations (LAHSO), which requires ATC to work with a LAHSO-confident pilot to safely land an aircraft while an intersecting runway is in operation. Scandlearn has LAHSO fully worked out to guide pilots through its procedures.
LAHSO was introduced because it enhances airport capacity and efficiency, and it also means fuel savings plus reduced operating expenses. However, LAHSO remains voluntary, so if an airline or a pilot does not accept LAHSO clearance ATC will have to guide the aircraft to another runway. Scandlearn’s course will ensure all flight crew are confident with the theory behind all LAHSO operations.
