How to properly gauge the impact strenght of a touchdown ?

Recommended Posts

HI Marx,

 

What I've been taught is that, most importantly you should arrive over the tresshold at Vapp, at 50feet AGL and decending at a 3degree glide. When you hear the 30feet call out slowly bring the power to idle. at the 20 call out raise the nose to arrest the decend. Let the aircraft settle on the runway. if you are light bring the power back sooner than if you are heavy. Or if it's hot vs cold.

 

Also remmember to look far down the runway to better guage your height and vertical speed. Slightly different for the different aircrafts. The 800 likes to float. Especially if you are a little fast. The 700 is really easy!

 

This works for me in real life.

 

Kind regards,
