Can only land one aircraft well

Don’t you all have like 1 or 2 fleets of aircraft you can land well and are just either a staller, slammer or floater on all other aircraft in game.
For me I can only grease the 777s or the a220.
I slam the 737,
I stall the 757 and I float the a380.

What is it/ are they for you?

I slam every aircraft but I don’t really care about butter landings. I aim for the touchdown zone and centerline mainly

Ye usually get centreline and touchdown zone fine. Just love to have a nice smooth landing after rly over 7-8hrs of cruise.
I’m useless when correcting crosswinds on to or landing tho ha.

It took me awhile to get confident with the 737 fleet, now I usually average -70fpm on landing. The 757 is a tricky one, especially with crosswinds! But leaving the power in until the 20 or 10ft callout helps for smoother touchdowns. All about practice, I try flying at different weights in solo to get a general “ballpark” idea of how the aircraft handles before heading to the expert server for an online flight.

For me the 777 always stalls for me even though I’m landing at like150 kts

I grease the 737-900, 747-8 and the 757
I stall the DC10, MD11
slam the a380, a340, a320
And float the 787, 767, A350l

I butter the A350………. That’s all.

Flap 30°
Appr speed 145/150kts
Thrust idle at 30
Flare at 20
Fly it down
Works a charm for me

Guess everyone’s different tho

I stopped using the HUD a while ago and I do my landings in the cockpit view only. That’s a big challenge. The one I can handle the best is the A330 … but I force myself to make every landing the best one possible.
Sometimes it works, sometimes not. No passenger was harmed tho.

I can the A350, A330, A220, 777 and 787 well. The A380’s a WIP, and I don’t fly narrowbodies often enough to land them super well. The 737 feels like a brick.

I have this problem every time but i’ve learned a trick to use.

If I focus too hard on trying to land good i end up getting too confident and end up smashing into the ground.

If I don’t focus much on my landing and more so just getting to my destination I tend to have a smoother landing.

The main aircraft’s I can land better in are, A220, A320 series, A340, A350, B737 Series & the 717. Not too be cocky but I am quite the expert with flying the 717.

FYI you could use the hud in the cockpit view Is under the interface section

I do that all the time

I can butter every plane but i always crash the spitfire
