Abstract

See full text

Systems and methods for generating an alert to the pilot of an aircraft during a deep/long landing situation. An example system includes a database that stores runway information, a position sensor that produces aircraft position information and a processor that is in data communication with the database and the position sensor. The processor includes an advisory condition detection component that compares altitude of the aircraft to a predefined altitude limit, determines if the aircraft is beyond an airline defined landing zone limit and not on the ground, and generates an alert to the pilot based upon the comparison and the determination. An output device outputs the generated alert. The airline defined landing zone limit is a fixed distance value from the approach end of a runway or a percentage of the total length of a runway, whichever allows for greatest amount of runway remaining.
