Landing Rates

Recommended Posts

I searched manual but could not find definition. What is this "-fpm" please? Is it some sort of score, If so, what "score" is considered a perfect landing, what "score" is considered a safe landing. If it is not a "score" then the query remains...what is it please? Thanking you all in advance and season's greetings. Dan

FPM is Feet Per Minute or the altitude loss or gain within a minute in feet. A safe landing is anywhere from -50 to -300 FPM.

Thank you so much for the speedy response, much appreciated. So I take it that it is not a "score" as such just an indication of how forcefully one is "slamming" the undercarriage into the ground. I found the "minus" sign before the figures a tad confusing. Maybe a short paragraph on the subject in the next release manual. Thankyou again. Cheers  Dan
