Heavy landing

How to land properly at MTOW weight/80-116% load on the 747-8? And what are some general tips for landing very heavy for any aircraft. Or is it even possible to land past 90% load at all?

Not its no possible to land more then 90% of total load
If you take off very heavy and for some reason you need to land. Just dump fuel

Why isn’t it possible?

Well you could. But your airplane would look like this after you land.



MTOW = Maximum Takeoff Weight. You already have more load than Maximum Landing Weight. You have a better chance at landing once below MLW.

If I get the trim right, flaps right, and exceed 230 knots will I be able to land 90% load 747-8?

Why do you need to land at that weight and speed? Are you experimenting?

I wanna complete a difficult challenge. Idk its maybe just me.

That isn’t legal. Going beyond that means you are a test pilot now.
