Vertical Speed (777-200ER Pilots)

I am trying to get a sense of how everyone is landing their aircraft once they are on final? I usually am at 3,000 ft moving at around 145kts 25 degree flaps and vs of 900-1000 until I get close enough to line it up to 600 for landing.

Nope, that’s not right. You’re way too slow.
The 777 usually intercepts the ILS with Flaps 15 (170-160 kts).


A quick Google search for the 777-200ER POH will give you any spec needed for proper operation as @Maxmustang would say trust by varify. Read up

@Alan_Perez… Alan both Brandon & Stormy are Oh so correct as always.
May I suggest the following if you don’t already have them;

1). Free from; “The Pilots Handbook” & “The Pilots Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge”.
2). By Web Search: the individual “Pilots Operating Manual” for your a/c of choice where all the V’s, Flap Settings, Load factors etc are found.
3) The Forum Tutorials (Use the little magnifying glass search Icon)

I further suggest you take the time to research your questions first. Do that and at some point you’ll be answering questions like an IF Eagle.
