Butter aircraft on IF

The A330 and 777 are the hardest to butter, the easiest is 737 for me

It doesn’t have ground effect so that doesn’t help either. If you apply a bit of throttle until touchdown it’s not too hard to butter it anymore.


The 717 is probably the hardest to land smoothly with a 5kts range between falling like a rock and floating like a balloon.

The 757. I don’t know why but the physics of it make it so hard to land

B717, done it before but if you’re gonna land a butter it bounces 😬 second place B737

757 all day, could never grease that thing.

The 747 family is fairly easy just use trip and throttle and you are guaranteed butter

The 757 is east to butter if you are heavy and use trim and throttle
