I’ve found the E175 to be pretty easy to get a nice clean butter

lmaoo I cant even land it without stalling lol

Id definitely say A330-900neo

Have you tried practicing in solo mode, selecting the short final function? It has you lined up for landing and allows you to just concentrate on practicing the flare over and over again.

Just keep hitting “short final” when you need to restart (it remembers your last throttle setting).

Highly recommended. By doing this practice, the actual aircraft becomes less important for getting low VS.


E-190. Just don’t hold the nosse up too much after the main landing gears have touched down.

A220s are pretty good for buttering! I also would suggest the Boeing 777-200. Enjoy!
