you should see what it’s like in real life, they’ll sometimes have approach lines stretch over all of lake michigan if they’re flowing west

Nice! Is it just me, or is the TBM-930 hard to land smoothly?
Great work!

Flare can be a pain. I aim for a nice low/idle throttle at 3-5 degrees seems to work out nicely 80 percent of the time.

Thanks! That’s really helpful!
