Landing with autothrottle

Recommended Posts

Hi,I read somewhere that we're supposed to land the B777 with autothrottle engaged, and that at around 25ft the throttle will go to idle. This works perfectly on an ILS approach, but when doing a visual it doesn't work, with the aircraft trying to maintain speed.Is ths correct? Or am I supposed to go to manual throttle on a visual approach? Thanks in advance...- daniel

Yea, on visual around 100 feet our so, take off AT, and go idle at around fifty.(At least that's what I do)- Kev

Ok, thanks for that... That's what I'll do.Just wondering though, is this proper (real-world) operating procedure?- daniel

Hi,Nope Autothrottle always stays in!Regardless of the approach flown the autothrottle always goes to idle between 25 and 50 RA.Cheerio Sjaako

Well... I suppose that's one for the 'fix' list for PSS. Thanks for the confirmation, Sjaako!(I wonder if they know about this already?)
