A side-step is when an aircraft is on an approach to one runway of a parallel set of runways, and then ATC approves a side-step maneuver to the parallel runway.  The aircraft simply joins the final approach of the parallel runway.

Hope this helps.

I hope I can answer your question with the definition from the Pilot/Controller Glossary:

Quote from: Pilot/Controller Glossary
SIDESTEP MANEUVER- A visual maneuver accomplished by a pilot at the completion of an instrument approach to permit a straight-in landing on a parallel runway not more than 1,200 feet to either side of the runway to which the instrument approach was conducted.

Valo,

Hehe, I wasn't trying to insult your English. Your english sounds fine. I was just commenting on how you didn't know what a sidestep was. Its understandable though If you are still in the probabational period.

Ive never been to China but hope to travel there one day. Who knows, maybe one day Ill be flying for Cathay Pacific. They seem to be doing a lot better than the US airlines.

ZOTAN,


we use different language,so we have different manners of expression

things could be different ,you know ,in comprehension

so we need to communicate


 anyway,if you come to my country for travel someday
maybe i could be your guide Smiley

valo_j, I have a question, if I may ask you...

I've been told that the in the Chinese language, pronunciation and tone are very critical. The same word can have a very different meaning if spoken even a little differently.

Are any of your radio communicatons done in Chinese, and if so, does this present any problems? (We all know that sometimes poor radio reception can make it difficult to understand some words. I can only imagine that the issue would be made worse if the speaker's tone were important too.)
