An Overview:

Approach and Landing Accidents Reduction (ALAR) is a safety initiative within the aviation industry that focuses on reducing accidents and incidents that occur during the approach and landing phases of flight. 

These accidents are often associated with errors in judgment, decision-making, and situational awareness, and they can result in significant damage to aircraft, injuries, or fatalities.ncidents.
