when i read this topics it looks a lot of pilots dont know what is a visual or vfr approach............there are still some stupid pilots to believe they are on ils while performing visual approach....... 9miles 2700ft ?????? i never read somewhere that on visual approach we have to follow glide path of 3 except in cebu pacific airlines ....... requirement for visual approach is to be stabilized at 500"........ anyway as its already said in ATR manual its clearly written under day light vmc conditions an EGPWS warning threshold may be deliberately exceeded ( cf EMERGENCY & ABNORMAL procedures EMER 03.50 page 30)
im not really surprised by typical VAC behaviour, nobody in VAC read any manual.... in cebu pacific as well ......

after AIR FRANCE ....... VIETNAM AIRLINES wants to teach to birds how to fly
