Im pretty sure that varies depend on aircraft

I flare at around 9°

I wouldn’t look at degrees as that’s probably distracting at the most critical stage of flight, it’s just enough to arrest your descent to -100 to -200 fpm but not float all the way down the runway

I usually pitch anywhere from 5degrees to 15 degrees depending on how heavy my aircraft is and how slow I am flying in on final.

I never pitch more than 6 degrees. I usually pitch at around 4 degrees. I depends on the aircraft though. Some aircraft are more prone to tail strike than others

I always flare around 5 degrees but I also base it on my rate of descent and speed. I also pay attention to the reticle on the HUD to base my flight path.

3-7 degrees. Depends on plane and wind.
