and it led to a not-so-pretty landing.
|Quoting PhilSquares (Reply 7):|
At my current carrier on an instrument approach you have to be stable at 1000'. That means in the landing configuration, on speed. For a visual it's 500' and a circling it's 300'.

The simple solution is to just take vectors for the ILS rather than the visual. Then ATC is required (in theory) to put no closer than 3 miles to the LOM. However, they can descend you, obstructions permitted and then turn you in. But normally, the GS intercept altitude is the lowest they will go.
