Try the 208. Works perfectly fine for the landing.

I’d personally recommend the 757, or something larger.

It’ll stop dead if you go nose first into the ground 🧐

F-22 works as well, just go 300 something knots, nose dive at the ground, pull up last second, and it’ll stop on a dime. but then you have the issue of moving again…

You can try the smallest 737 with max reverse thrust and brakes, might work…

I landed with 737-800. The problem is not landing but taking off.

C130s stop quick too.

C130, TBM, C172, C208, and SR22. All of those are good options.

C-17 ? Give it a try

X-cub with <5% load

(Full flaps, ~45kt approach for best stopping distance)

@AviationChampion @DuncanNL yep it worked

You could just have almost no weight and use the parking brake if you don’t want realism.

Does this count? Lol
