During descent into ZZZ; we were cleared for a visual approach. I was high; so I deployed the spoilers and continued to the runway. We configured the aircraft on speed and lowered the gear. I was still fast; but was slowing. After selecting landing flaps; we got an ECAM for flight controls. It took me a second to realize that I had left the spoilers out. I stowed them and we finished the landing checklist. I was still faster than I wanted to be; but I continued to land. I landed in the far end of the touchdown zone and applied moderate reverse. Due to the high approach speed; I landed in an unspooled confign; configuring the aircraft earlier and selecting the gear down farther out instead of trying to use spoilers only to slow and then forgetting to stow them.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: AN A319 PILOT LANDED LONG FOLLOWING AN UNSTABILIZED APCH BECAUSE HE WAS HIGH; FAST; AND CONFIGURED LATE.
Narrative: DURING DSCNT INTO ZZZ; WE WERE CLRED FOR A VISUAL APCH. I WAS HIGH; SO I DEPLOYED THE SPOILERS AND CONTINUED TO THE RWY. WE CONFIGURED THE ACFT ON SPD AND LOWERED THE GEAR. I WAS STILL FAST; BUT WAS SLOWING. AFTER SELECTING LNDG FLAPS; WE GOT AN ECAM FOR FLT CTLS. IT TOOK ME A SECOND TO REALIZE THAT I HAD LEFT THE SPOILERS OUT. I STOWED THEM AND WE FINISHED THE LNDG CHKLIST. I WAS STILL FASTER THAN I WANTED TO BE; BUT I CONTINUED TO LAND. I LANDED IN THE FAR END OF THE TOUCHDOWN ZONE AND APPLIED MODERATE REVERSE. DUE TO THE HIGH APCH SPD; I LANDED IN AN UNSPOOLED CONFIGN; CONFIGURING THE ACFT EARLIER AND SELECTING THE GEAR DOWN FARTHER OUT INSTEAD OF TRYING TO USE SPOILERS ONLY TO SLOW AND THEN FORGETTING TO STOW THEM.
