That's a very vague question, at what point do you want information from? What aircraft?

Well when your getting ready. How to reduce the speed correctly flaps etc.

For VI?R operation, the narrative states, "Due to terrain,
when landing on runway 5, maintain 1,000 feet and disregard the VAST
imtil crossing Lima Oscar Golf NDB.

Pan American route manual for Pago Pago airport.
At this point, VAS1 will indicate
This same information was also printed on page T-1 of the
Flights made as a part of the investigation revealed that if this
procedure were adhered to, the aircraft would be positioned about 350
feet above the normal IIS glide slope at the LOG NDB. This would
require a considerably higher rate of descent to complete the approach
than would be required if the electronic glide slope were used. The
approved ATC procedure provides the desired guidance and a lower rate of
descent. The Safety Board believes that these procedures should not
differ significantly.

This is about as vague as your question. If you want the complete article.

Still very ambiguous. What aircraft?

You add flap according to the reduction in speed as you make the final approach from around 10 miles out. Speed reduces from 250 KIAS to around 125-160 KIAS depending on the aircraft and weight, as you get closer to the airport. As this speed drops, you add flap to increase the wing's surface area and create more lift for the slower speeds.

Not a very clear answer, but the question was never crystal clear to start with.

When making an approach to land, I first get on the com and tell the SOB's-Were gonna land soon, hold on!!
Then I tell the stewies to pack up the crap, then I pull the power back and pop the boards, then drop the barn doors and the rubber, and me and my copilot open our cabin windows and put our arms out--then we land.
