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?


#5

The BBJ does between 125 kts and 135 kts based on wind speed and weight.


#7

It’s like Vapp.

You’re sitting in an Airbus :D


#8

I thought vref was 1.3 x stall speed in full landing configuration?


#9

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.
