So what does it means?
It means when you do smooth landings 😉
“butter on the runway”
It just means a very very Very Very soft landing
What I just did at NZHN with @Trio. 😉
It means they made a bad landing. So if someone always brags about how they “butter” landings, you know they suck at landing. (;
This is a #joke
When you hear him say butter, he’s likely referring to this.
THIS IS BUTTER. It has nothing do to with landing or aviation. Period.
Essentially, when people say butter the landing, you are correct, they butcher the landing. The correct terminology is grease. IF you have the skill to grease a landing then you’re a good pilot. @Swiss Take note for the next YouTube video. 😃
^ Butter on the Bread…
You’re Welcome… You’ve all been blessed
We all know all of you butter the landing by stalling the plane over the runway😂
I buttered my landing at CLT yesterday, just ask @Tom_Grollman
heres a chart i use on the daily:
Landing smoothness chart
Substantial spine injuries : -700 fpm
Co-pilot’s retainer fell out : -400 fpm
Like cold toast : -300
Marmelade : -200
Smooth : -150
Butter : -100
Creamy : -50
Silk : -10
moaning : -1
No you didnt. You greased your landing. Buttering landings doesn’t exist. It’s a fairy tale.
I always thought “butter” was something only sim pilots (non actual pilots) said.
Not you didn’t. You most definitely crashed the plane and slid off of the runway. Just ask @Dillon_Lewis who was flying over head en route to DCA.
So referencing Swiss 001, Ryanair never grease or butter the landing. Is that right?
That’s not fair to say in my opinion. I think people jump on the exaggeration band wagon!
Honestly, who cares what phrase pilots use to refer to a smooth landing? We use idioms everyday that make no sense when you break them down into their actual context. People get too uptight about language, when language is supposed to be expressive, not fixed.
All you guys talking about buttering a landing got @Swiss ‘s song stuck in my head. Anyway, buttering the bread is as said above, smooth landing! ;-)
Greased makes it slippery which means you slip off the runway
All this talk of butter makes me want to go buy some waffles.
We all know butter the bread but what about greasing the grease traps?
