F-16 tips…

Hello fellow pilots…

So recently I’ve been learning the F-16. She’s a beauty to fly. So far these are the things that I’ve accomplished

  • Successful takeoff
  • Maintain Speed
  • Maintain Heading
  • Maintain altitude without jolting

However I’m struggling to land this beauty. For landing, I do the run and break technique. What speed do I land and what altitude do I flare?

Many thanks

Hello! I’d highly recommend taking a look at this post to help in your current situation.

Pro-tip, don’t forget about your speed at takeoff as I just found out the hard way

Some basics:

  • 60% throttle is enough for takoffroll
  • Vr is about 160KIAS
  • NO flaps for landing (flaps are useless at all)
  • landing speed is around 140KIAS
    in addition, Energie (aka Speed) could be decrease by hard turning and pulling.
    Gear max speed is 210KIAS, do retract it asap after airborne
