I was a bit alarmed to read this

- Air Canada Rouge did not provide flight crews with simulator training in recognizing an unstable approach leading to a missed approach.

Surely this is exactly the sort of thing simulator checks are for. I mean an unstable approach should always be followed by a go around should'nt it otherwise you end up where these guys did or worse. And if its a predictable occurrence then they should get the training on how to handle it. A view from down the back but it really struck me as an odd statement
TSBC have included a similar comment in a recent report on a dash 8 incident in Toronto.
Findings as to risk
1. If operators do not provide adequate simulator training for flight crews to recognize an unstable approach, then there is a risk that flight crews will continue an approach when it is unstable, which may lead to a landing incident.
