I just got the update and I can’t figure out what’s a good speed to use when doing an autoland
Normally, it’s 130 kts.

What is VREF?
The BBJ does between 125 kts and 135 kts based on wind speed and weight.
It’s like Vapp.
You’re sitting in an Airbus :D
I thought vref was 1.3 x stall speed in full landing configuration?
I’ve been landing the BBJs using the APPR system with loads under 40%, full flaps, 128-132 knots. Depending a bit on winds and airport altitude, this may need manual adjusting as the aircraft approaches.
