Landing speed query.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I have now managed to be able to do a full flight from start to finish without any major problems. I am a bit confused about Vref speeds though. In the charts manual (page 29) there is some Vref speeds to use for landing. I was around 24,000 lbs so I used flap 20 and the chart gave me a Vref speed of 112 knots. The problem is, if I go anywhere near this speed, the nose attitude is way too high and it feels like it is going to stall. 

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.
Callum.

You're not doing anything wrong.  The 340A's are not a very graceful aircraft when it comes to landing.  From what I remember that was told to me, the reason for this is the lack of wing sweep in the aircraft.  I will try to duplicate this landing for you and see how it behaves, but the pilots we consulted gave us feedback on the landing performance, and how different the Saab behaves to other aircraft with a greater wing sweep.
