Landing Nose Straight

Recommended Posts

I've shared this with a couple people outside of the forum, and going through pic's on phone I noticed this and thought it was worth tossing out to the group.  I placed a small piece of tape under the windshield for a reference mark in nose pointing dead straight down the runway.  Depending upon CT model, some people reference a screw on panel, or apply tape on panel / mushroom.  Making the mark as far out front allows for more precise "gun sight".  

Now that my hours have climbed and have the visual cues more natural, I rarely look at this.  But when the wind is howling and landing in a nasty crabbed cross wind, it's nice to see that mark and know I'm aiming down the runway.

My first CT had a black sharpie dot on the windscreen.  Previous owner must have thought that was a good idea.

I like the tape idea.
