Landing Procedure

Lufthansa-pilot90 Guest

hey..

Can anyone give the exact landing procedure of the B737-500/700
and the Airbus A320-200?

Be more specific.

Well.. I mean, from the moment that you start your desent, and until you are taxiing to the gate: landing procedure..

More specific?

well, I duno if this is gonna help, cuz B and A are different:

1)Flying below 10000 ft always 250 or less kts no more.
2)Flaps manuly, depends on the speed, and how many miles away from RWY.
3)VSI:800 ft/min approaching
4)Landing speed is 150 kts on glide slope.

Auto brakes depends on weather and lenght of RWY, and spoilers and basicaly thats it.

MOST IMPORTEN: watch for your speed, VSI, heading and picth level.

Oh yea BTW, try to look somewhere on the websites, for the checklists for these aircrafts 😉

Tiger gives you some good information. You can also find some information here:

Speed depends on the aircraft. For a 737 I'd suggest a landing speed of around 130kts with little fuel left.

Make control movements on approach small. Watch your airspeed like a hawk.

Add flaps incrementally and at the correct speeds which can be found in the kneeboard. Don't exceed Vfe.

Constant and correct speed is the key to a good approach and landing.

Good luck!

As far as the 737 goes mabye this will answer a few things....

During intermediate approach - before glideslope capture

Speed is controlled by pitch
Rate of descent is controlled by thrust

During final approach - after glideslope capture

Speed is controlled by thrust
Rate of descent is controlled by pitch

Pitch & Power Settings on Final Approach

Use 5deg nose up for initial flap settings.
Use 2.5deg nose up for flap 30.
For flap 30, start with 55% N1, then adjust as required.
Stabilise the aircraft at the selected approach speed with a constant RoD between approx 600 to 800 fpm on a desired glide path, in trim.

Descent rates above 1000fpm should be avoided.

Visual Aiming Point

Aim for the aiming point markers or your desired gear touchdown point if no markers are available. Now adjust the final approach glide path until the selected point is stationary in relation to the aircraft. ie it does appear to move up or down the windscreen.

The approach lights & runway centerline should run between your legs until touchdown, then keep the centerline running down your inside leg.

Flare and Touchdown

After the threshold goes out of sight under the nose, shift the visual sighting point to a point approximately 3/4 down the runway while maintaining descent, this will assist in determining the flare point. Initiate the flare when the main gear is approx 15 feet above the runway by increasing the pitch attitude by about 3deg and smoothly bring the thrust levers back to idle. Do not float, but fly the aircraft onto the runway and accomplish the landing roll procedure.

Standardised Procedures for the approaches

Just a wee note though that they procedures are for the NG series. THere may be only slight variation to normal B737 procedures if any at all.
