    All that info is on the CD manual.

    I put down landing flaps and gear, trim for neutral and see what speed the aircraft stabilises at when the nose stops bobbing up and down. That's approach speed.

    Once on approach I set the aircraft up in the same configuration and use throttle to control glide slope. More throtte gives slower decent, less is steeper.

    Hi,

    Standard approach speed is 1.3 times the stall speed of the aircraft in level flight with flaps and gear in landing configuration. As mentioned, you can find that out at altitude. When I have airframe damage I try to test this at some altitude&mdash;the airplane is likely to stall at higher speeds, especially with wing damage.

    You need to approach at above stall speed because when you flare you will burn off some of energy; your goal is to come out of the flare practically at stall speed just above the landing surface.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    I'm sure you all confused him by now. Just read the manual on the 2nd CD. It gives you all the info you need to know for each plane.
