Hi,in the real aviation life Pilots are using a specific VREF landing chart but there's a little trick to calculate easy and quickly the VREF.You have to remember :Plane weight=550000 lbs VREF=140ktsFor a weight difference of 22000lbs add or reduce the VREF of 3ktsExamples:Weight=528000lbs VREF=137ktsWeight=572000lbs VREF=143ktsCheers Gianfranco
