A series of thruster modifications, sensor calibrations and avionics that allow a ship to fly effectively while close to a planetary body. Required to land on planets without atmospheres.

— In-Game Description

The Planetary Approach Suite is a specialised module that complements Thrusters and allows a ship to enter Orbital Cruise and land on the surface of terrestrial bodies without atmospheres. It is installed in a reserved Optional Internal compartment, and consumes no power or fuel. It is the predecessor of the Advanced Planetary Approach Suite.

Usage[]

The functions of the Planetary Approach Suite are fully automatic. All that a pilot has to do in order to use it is to ensure it is installed on their ship. Upon approaching a planetary body and entering Orbital Cruise, the Planetary Approach Suite will activate additional HUD elements to help orient the pilot. If the pilot attempts to land on a suitable body, the module also activate and maintain Glide mode once the ship descends to an altitude of 25 kilometers.
