Hi, please apologize this possibly very often asked question ! I'm interested to hear what is the common practice when hand landing the 747-400 as you have to do e.g. at St. Maarten (TNCM) using auto throttle or not. My experience as PC pilot is of course that it can be very convenient because you get rid of some workload. But I want to know when it is recommended to do so or are there some issues maybe because safety is affected to be advised manually control throttle settings. Some information from the reality and common practice if there is one as well is appreciated. Thank you. regards Thomas Burchard
