jbearnolimits Posted October 8, 2019 Share Posted October 8, 2019 I thought I would go back to the beginning and fly the c172 as many suggest getting it mastered first. I've learned to be at traffic pattern and on the glidescope, full flaps and at 65kt. It isn't too hard to land in the first 3rd of the runway in the c172. But considering I want to improve I know I tend to float a little. Obviously when I used the larger aircraft it becomes more noticed and I typically end up touching down half way of the runway. So maybe I can learn to fix the issue in the c172. Again, I come in at 65kt. I put engine to idol at the threshold of the runway and flair about 10 ft above the runway. So what is it causing the float that I am missing? Oh, and wind is 0. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
