Continuous Descent Final Approach (CDFA)

Pilot

This class includes a discussion of the CDFA Continuous Descent Final Approach, which used to be known as Constant Angle Non-Precision Approach (CANPA). CDFA is a technique used by crewmembers when flying a non-precision instrument approach. ICAO, EASA, the FAA, and other worldwide regulatory agencies recommend this technique to help flight crews avoid the classic "Dive and Drive" method of non-precision approach. In the "Dive and Drive" system, the flight crew uses a "step down" procedure to lower the aircraft altitude as they approach the airport. With a CDFA, the flight crew will hold a precise ground speed and rate of descent. The result is the ability to fly all types of approaches the same way, using the same SOP, thereby improving safety.
