4. Use Visual Approach Slope Indicator (VAST) or
Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAN) systems
for a visual reference, or an electronic glide slope,
whenever they are available.

5. Utilize the visual descent point (VDP) found on many
nonprecision instrument approach procedure charts.

6. Recognize that the chances of being involved in an
approach accident increase when some emergency or
other activity distracts from usual procedures.

7. Maintain optimum proficiency in landing procedures.
