Question: What’s better than flying a parallel approach?
Answer: Flying a converging approach!

What is a converging approach you may ask? Basically, it means that you will be landing on one runway while another plane is landing on the crossing runway LITERALLY seconds before you. So…. when the final controller tells you to maintain 180 knots to a 5 mile final, please don’t let us down.

P.S. When tower tells you to call traffic in sight, just say yes*
P.P.S. Go arounds not permitted**
