Do you land with full power? What I mean is do you land with the throttle pushed all the way up or down or somewhere in between?
I apply just enough power to maintain glide speed, then cut it at the apron.
No, you should not land with full throttle, if you have flaps at 40 or 30 degrees, then the VSI will shoot up and you will glide the length of the runway 😞 (Not good). The power should be quite low, around 30-50% N1 and then cut the power just before touchdown, but not too early, or you will have a heavy landing and bounce back up 😕 .
Hope that helps 😀
I'd like to add one more thing. If you land with the throttles at full power you will not be able to apply the reverse thrust. Reverse thrust only works when the throttles are all the way down, meaning that you don't apply power. If you do this, you will be able to apply revese thrust.
You land at whatever the "Cutoff" Throttle setting is for the aircraft you're flying. Simply put, hit F1 at 50 feet and flare to land.
Your throttle setting should be no higher than needed for short final profile i.e. flaps, speed over the fence. In my case N1 is 50-56. That will generally support 150 kts, 30 deg flaps in the 737 descending at 650-700 fpm.
You have just enough speed ot maintain the glide speed for the approach and then when you are a few feet off of the runway you pull it all the way back and then you flare for your landing. Good luck!
If you want a GREAT example of flaring try landing the F16 (I have the Lago one and it is fantastic). It is procedure to land with the speed brakes open and consequently you do have to land with a good degree of open throttle! When you are just about to touch down you close the throttle - it says you should also try to hold the nose in the air for as long as possible once on the ground to help it slow down.
This made me think of carrier landings. Applying full power after landing.
😂 Just don't fly faster than your angels can!!
