Nose Up

How do you get your nose up when you are landing a 777-300ER without going up in altitude.

3/4 flaps approach at 170 kts airspeed. At 500 ft alt reduce to 160kts flare at 50ft

For me it’s full flaps 155kts, over the threshold at 50 feet and flaring at around 10 feet. At that airspeed the plane won’t go up when you flare. Once I get over the threshold power to idle.

I suggested 170kts for learning as it is easier to recover if you are not perfectly aligned. Below 500ft you are committed thats why I power down (Autopilot off < 500ft)


Why should you be committed below 500 feet? You can even make a go around when you touch the runway. A go around can be initiated until the reversers are pulled.

Your nose should be maybe 2-3 degrees up, maybe a bit more which you can initiate during the flare if needed.

Obviously you are going too fast.
