  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.

  2. How much maneuvering space does the Boeing B757-300 need in front of the plane for push back equipment to get the plane in and out of an aircraft hangar? Are there published design standards that can be found on line?
