Hey guys! Here you will be able to learn how to butter the 757! I make this topic because the 757 is very sensitive and difficult to land…
Make sure you have 30° of flaps, spoilers armed and keep the speed autopilot between 140 and 145 knots of airspeed or control the speed manually if you’re comfortable. Keep in mind that the speed can change according to your weight.
Stay in the glide-slope. PAPI lights should show you 2 reds and 2 whites. Make small corrections if needed.
Check your localiser to stay centerlined. Once again, make small corrections if needed.
The moment you hear “50”, if you still have the speed autopilot on, disconnect it.
Just after that, start flaring smoothly and pull back the throttle 15 to 20%. Also, don’t forget to use a little bit of rudder to maintain the centerline!
That’s it! Obviously, you won’t butter the first time but if you practice, you’ll become a butter landings master!
One more thing… Keep in mind that if you flare to early or if ou float, you can always go around! ;)

Have a great day and stay safe!
