The present paper discusses the ability to determine low altitudes and challenges the effectiveness of current general aviation landing flare instructions. Conclusions are based on literary review from a variety of sources such as general aviation flight instruction manuals, aviation literature, and scientific publications. Key findings suggest that current flare instructions are inconsistent, ambiguous, and of limited helpfulness to pilots wishing to learn how to determine altitude before initiating the landing flare.
