If you don’t know how to takeoff. Hang on there for a sec, look at this first
Welcome back to this landing tutorial.
Takeoff and cruise is pretty easy. In this tutorial, please still refer to my takeoff tutorial for the weight settings.
The Dash 8 isn’t a great plane for decending, so plan your decend earlier to ensure your nose is up. Slowing down also help.
Flaps setting(Not professional, just my way of doing it).
Flaps 5 at 4500
Flaps 10 at 10NM away
Flaps 15 at 4-5NM away
Moving back to landing, gear should be down at around 8NM
Speed is critical to a good landing, so here we go
When you are at flaps 5, stay at around 160 knots.
At flaps 10 around 140
When you put your gear down, 130
Flaps 15 should be 125
This is not a airbus that does 50 40 30 20 retard, you need to apply thrust for it to flare properly.
After reaching 50 feet ASL, flare bit by bit, don’t pitch up more than 5 degrees, and maintain thrust(no more than 40) to not let the speed drop too much
Slamming the nose to the ground is the last thing you want to see before ending your flight which is going well.
Retract thrust bit by bit until your nose is down, fully. Then start the reverse thrust(no more than 80) to 60 knots and use breaks for the final bit, exit runway and continue like you will do on a normal plane.
Video is coming along nicely…
