Autoland throttle

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I do a full autoland, I have the speeds set from the FMC REF page so I am not going too fast, when I get to 100ft I disengage the autothrottle and reduce throttles to idle, and the aircraft got down to 10ft but didn't land, am I supposed to leave the autothrottle engaged and am I supposed to make the throttles to idle

 

Thanks in advance

 

Cooper

The throttles auto-retard with A/T engaged. You should retard your physical throttles, too, because the clamp mode will be de-activated after switching off the A/T.

 

With A/T off you control the thrust manually. Not sure about that endless 10 ft flare, though.

If you are autolanding, leave both A/P and A/T engaged until all wheels are on the ground. Moments after that you should disengage them.
