    Default F.P.L. notation in A.F.U. logbook

    During my Dad's time at the 11 (P)AFU in Shawbury in 1944, he did a number of exercises that his logbook calls "F.P.L". All were at night, and were variously labeled "6 F.P.L.", "2 F.P.L." etc. Each exercise lasted from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
    Can anyone give me any insight into what F.P.L. stands for?
    Thanks in advance for any help,
    Clint

    Thanks Errol, thats a possibility......someone has suggested Field Precautionary Landings, as in a forced landing in a field or improvised landing area.
    I have a general idea about Flare Path,....can you elaborate? Was it like FIDO?
    Thanks, Clint

    Thanks Dave.
    Do you think "Flare Path Landing" is the likely answer....?
