no its 31,000

I usually do 1200 to 1600 ft/min.
On a side note, for a late descent, dive bomb is Ok, gear out brakes tremendously!

Maybe you should say: Number one way to get ghosted


Honestly, -1000 anywhere to -2000 would be fine

And dont do that!

Dive bomb means 2000 ft/min for me, and no worries, I have no ghost in many many Atc landings!
As for gear braking, it is part if flying that aircraft…
Thanks anyway.

Flaps TO under 170kt, LD under 122kt also. The gear braking allows for fast approach on busy airports with airliners around.

something tells me that @Tep_NEMO is actually pretty skilled at flying the TBM

Not skilled, but I have done hundred of flights with it! 😀

310 is max

The POH is a great resource and the game is incredibly close to the real world performance. Picture of the descent table below. Link to the full POH here:
