Just a quick question

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

just a quick random question - I had to perform an auto land due to weather conditions and it did it perfect however I’ve done several landings to check and all seem to be about -235fpm on autoland compared to the 777 which lands a lot softer is there a reason or is it all down to weights 

 

not a problem just curious

Autolanding airplanes don‘t chase vertical speeds (and so shouldn‘t you), they „simply“ pitch up to a specific nose angle to reduce the decent angle. And as you likely touched down faster in the 747 than in the 777 this results in a higher VS. But -200fpm is pretty fine.
