What’s your favorite plane to land manually?!

With Autoland not an option. I would have to choose the 767! What’s your favorite? And why?

Definitely the 777-300ER now, it flares beautifully and glides down onto the runway. 😎

Yeah. I could never figure it out 😂
If I use anything it’s limited autopilot once on short final

All of them. What fun is it to autoland any aircraft that has it when the conditions allow it? Only Cat III should you be landings fully automated. Otherwise what point is there if you are just going to use the AP the whole time? All you are doing manually is taxiing and taking off for 10-20 seconds before you engage AP. Learn how to hand fly and enjoy the challenge. You never learn and grow if you dont challenge yourself. Dont be an underachiever and rely on automation to accomplish everything for you.

My favorite plane to land manually would be the Globemaster. It’s a good plane, up-to-date
