Can you do it?

So, I was just messing around on IF and then I decided to attempt butterization on the Cessna 172. As I have heard previously, it is kind of hard. Can anyone do it?

It does sound kind of hard to me to be honest. I assume it took you a lot of grocery store trips to buy all the butter. Kind of a shame to waste it all by melting it on top of a plane.

That’s hilarious! 😂

Yes, making soft landings in the Cessna takes work, but keep at it! With the right technique and the right amount of practicing, you’ll be greasing those landings in no time. :)

@DeerCrusher made a topic about that???

Wait, let’s make a survey of 1,000 pilots, GA, Commercial and military. Let’s prove what term is true. But I will still say butter though, it’s my username.

“As I have heard…”

And you believed it? Oh boy. A wise person once told me, “do as I do, don’t do as I say.” Its a twist on the “do as I say, don’t do as I do”. Anyways, the moral of the story is, don’t say that you’re going to butter your landings because someone else said so. Rather, do grease your landings (like a real pilot) and share the results.

Even the ol’ Merriam-Webster Dictionary thinks your “butterization” thing is a foolish thing to say. 🤮

A safe landing does not have to be a soft or a smooth landing. I have heard something about the flare in the cessna being less controlled than the flare on a larger aircraft. As long as it’s not a hard landing you are fine.
