What's the best way of landing a civil jet?

Sometimes when Im too high to land it, the runways runs out for me to even touch the ground. But when Im too low, the aircraft lands before the runway. I've tried using the elevator drop (or whatever you call it) and it does help. But I am new in this aircraft stuff so whats the best way to land a civil jet?

But if you must fly pax aircraft 🙄

One of the best ways is to use the ILS approach, as it is extremely accurate and will stop you over shooting the runway etc. FEM has a good guide to ILS approaches:

That is if you want autopilot to land it. You can look out the cockpit window and look at those lights next to the runway. If you see two red lights and three white lights you are on the glide slope. If you see four red lights you are below the glide slope. And if you see four white lights, you are above the glide slope.
You can also land it yourselve if you use the ILS approach. (That is if you know how to fly using the instruments)

I finally figured out how to land it probably. I practised a dozen times with a smaller plane. And another dozen times with an Airbus. 🙂

All times are GMT Page 1 of 1
