Abstract

See full text

A method, avionics apparatus and computer program for determining a terminal flight path, including access to aircraft position information provided by a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver. The method apparatus and computer program determine an Intended Touchdown Point (ITP), which is the desired landing location on an intended runway; determine a Current Touchdown Point (CTP), which is where the aircraft will land given its current glidepath and is a function of the current trajectory, configuration and engine thrust; determine a correspondence of the CTP and ITP and generate an output signal as a function of the correspondence, which is displayed on a cockpit display device, annunciated on a cockpit speaker, or both.
