MaxFledglingFacts: "Timing Your Flare" (Video-An Optical Illusion)

MaxSez: This works in IF even for speedy Trash Haulers. Try it you’ll like it.


Cool video. Can I just ask why this is in live?

Because it’s very lively.


I mean, can’t you also use it in solo? I think this should be under general.

Wow, very informative. Its almost an optical illusion that proves helpful.

Question, the 30% he references, is that IAS or throttle %?

Thanks for sharing nice tip. @THE-OP they are taking about 30% above the stall speed. For that specific configuration.


I watch AOPA Live every week! In fact there is one coming out today.(or tomarrow)

Yea… so IAS, 30% of whatever the stall speed is?

Stall speed + 30% of that = your landing confit speed for this video?

In IF, I time my flare with the callouts. I hear until the callouts are like 30 and then flare it

@THE-OP… MaxSez: Op’s your kill me w/ laughter! Always the teck perfectionist. Lov them Gotye’s… Regards


Experience. Skill. And knowledge is how I time my flare. Put it in to ground effect and when it starts to bleed off speed start your flare and bam perfect touchdown

Awesome video! Definitely helped me.

Just another tip, if you are landing on a short runway, getting down early so you can stop in time is more important than the soft touchdown haha. Learned this the hard way at Chicago Midway earlier in IF…

Not every plane will flare at 30.

I use that as a guide. Sometimes if needed, I would flare earlier
