Right can someone tell me what the correct speed and ATT is to land a 737. Full fuel and passengers. Its just that I always make a hard landing
And if im on fs passenger it always says passengers donít know if they had crashed or landed hard.

Never land an aircraft with full fuel. Calculate your fuel accordingly before you depart 😉

If you check the kneeboard on the reference page, it should tell you the target landing speed for the amount of passangers and fuel you have on board. I'm not sure but I think it's around 140- 150 KIAS.

well thanks guys ❗
but can,t you DUMP fule?
that would be cool to see ❗

Perhaps that's another thing we should be able to do in FS2006...
I just press ALT and change my fuel from the Aircraft menu.

yeah that is true, damping fuel would also be a very nice effect on fs2006. I mean is this so hard to do? Come on, just add some 2 nice contrails, and fatser burning on fuel, let us x16 so it could be almost as dumping. how easy is this algorytm? Good, those micro scoop guys, so lazy.

Another way about right speed for landing is keeping your aircraft on full flaps with such a speed, that your horizontal indicator is exaclty in neutral position,

so not like this which would be:
```___|___
===== | ===== <-- too slow,add more throttle

===== ===== <-- too fast, take out some of throttle Fear

Why would you need to dump fuel? You should be NO WHERE near full when landing.

You would need to dump or burn fuel for various reasons....if you are at all up weight lose a BRT on TO then you need to land ASAP. Full fuel could well mean being well over MLW.

I believe the default 737's say 147 knots in their kneeboard for approach. I usually cut the throttles at 10 feet and landing speed is usually around 134 with 4-5 degrees nose up.

Good luck.

Well yes but he's making it seem he needs to dump fuel becaues he seems to either be taking off with way too much fuel to begin with or because he has fuel consumption off.
