Asahi and Mainichi wrote that the Transport Ministry held a hearing on Wednesday for JAL and ANA pilots who conducted test flights on two newly established flight paths to Haneda Airport last month. Concerning the ministry’s instructions for aircraft to use a steep 3.45-degree approach when landing at the airport, Asahi reported that the pilots said there will be no safety issues if they are allowed to use alternative landing methods flexibly. According to Mainichi, the pilots requested that after flying to the airport at a 3.45-degree angle in the early phase of the final approach, they be allowed to adjust to 3 degrees once the aircraft has descended to an altitude of 450 meters.
