Aircraft Landing Speeds - IF - (50% Load)

Can someone move this to #tutorials please?

Note if you follow these, you will get landings like this:

Why would you want to land like that? Looks too slow to me for an A319 at medium weight…

Don’t aircraft IRL land with the rear gear first?

Isn’t this:image
A smooth landing? 🙂

That procedure shown in the OP is too vertical. You need to have a more horizontal position.

All those speeds are too low.

Wasn’t it you who had struggles to make smooth manual landings…?

No, but I used to. Way before I joined the community 😉

The B738 has a landing speed of 135kts-150kts. 145kts is a good landing speed with 50% weight.

This is kinda unrealistic but I need a smooth landing technique…

When it’s raining (in real life) in the region I’m flying in, I deliberately land harder because you have to penetrate the layer of water on the runway to avoid aqua planing.

I land at A380 at 150 IAS. It’s still smooth.

Some of your speeds seem a bit slow. It’s certainly possible to land at some of them, but it would be more of a slam than a gentle easing into the runway

Would you like me to add this to the first post?

@Kilt_McHaggis Don’t you have a page on your website concerning landing speeds or am I mistaken?
