    My version - cleared a visual 33R YYZ, no guidance. Just a nice bright sunny day. Very young FO flying fresh from line indoc. About 10 miles back he says "so is this where I activate the approach?" Caught me off guard for a sec. I said "No. See the runway?" He says "yup". I said "Hit it with the wheels." He said something like "Huh. Really."

    That's a good story. And a good point. Stable approaches are a major focus right now. Interesting, how many times a crew that gets slam dunked tries to recover through automation when they are way outside the effective realm of that mode. What would be simple in a low or no automation state morphs into this hair-on-fire flurry of hands and fingers and sucks the crews SA down the drain. My own funny story. On approach the other day, we expected a tailwind from around 4000 feet till 500 feet or so. I was PF, down early, on speed, but no tailwind materialized. Hmmm. Nice low altitude tour of the boonies! Grinding our way onto the glideslope, as soon as we pitched over, the wind made its appearance and our speed shot up with a trend arrow past our max speed for our flap selection. I took the easy road - AP off, shallow the descent, get the speed trending where I wanted it as we got the gear down and worked our way back into the slot (visual conditions) reference the PAPI and keeping the vertical speed somewhere sensible. While we met all of the gates, my partner (new-ish), mentioned on the taxi in, 'I thought we were going around. I have never seen what you did, done". I was concerned, did I miss something, were we not stable? 'Oh no, everything was bang on. I just have never actually seen that done. Neat!". Well, now he has.... Vs
