On flight to wichita, ks, approach was conducted in visual conditions. Approach control kept us at 10000' MSL until 18 NM from airport, which made descent difficult. Conditions were a little gusty. Speed was kept at 10-15 KTS, above target speed, and aircraft went approximately 1 DOT below G/south at approximately 1000' AGL. There was an aci onboard who stated that the approach was not acceptable to him, and he felt it should have been more stabilized. I was flying the approach, and both the capts and myself felt the approach was within limits.

Title: FO OF ACR MLG FLEW AN UNSTABILIZED APCH WITH ACI IN COCKPIT CONDUCTING A ROUTE CHECK.
Narrative: ON FLT TO WICHITA, KS, APCH WAS CONDUCTED IN VISUAL CONDITIONS. APCH CTL KEPT US AT 10000' MSL UNTIL 18 NM FROM ARPT, WHICH MADE DSCNT DIFFICULT. CONDITIONS WERE A LITTLE GUSTY. SPD WAS KEPT AT 10-15 KTS, ABOVE TARGET SPD, AND ACFT WENT APPROX 1 DOT BELOW G/S AT APPROX 1000' AGL. THERE WAS AN ACI ONBOARD WHO STATED THAT THE APCH WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO HIM, AND HE FELT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE STABILIZED. I WAS FLYING THE APCH, AND BOTH THE CAPTS AND MYSELF FELT THE APCH WAS WITHIN LIMITS.
