Precisely what is meant when an aircraft is 'on short finals'?
#70078. Asked by islandlad. (Aug 26 06 2:06 AM)
That's the point at which you commit your aircraft to land from final approach configuration. A landing can be on final for quite a while, several miles of what's commonly called a 'straight-in approach', but usually the last quarter mile or so for smaller aircraft is called short final. Here's a light fixed wing doing just that. http://www.easyairshare.com/pictures/displayimage.php?album=3&pos=6

Approximately 60 seconds or less from the touchdown point, unless your airplane is broken you are never "committed" to land.
