  1. Thanks for all of this information on one of my favorite aircraft. I fly this plane in X-Plane 10 simulator.

    I have a plug in that rates landings.

    I believe it does not take into account the size/type of aircraft. I provides FPM/Vertical Speed readings with is good.

    However, it states that a B-757 touching down at 500 FPM is way too hard.

    Where can I find information for the safe/proper Vertical Speed during touch down.

    Again, thanks so much for this site.

    1. Well, if an aircraft does an ILS approach, the glide slope is 3%; with this you should be able to figure out vertical speed; I have a copy of the 757/767 Crew Training Manual in which they do not specifically talk about vertical speeds, the only thing I can find, is 300 ft per NM, hopefully this will help.
