Erwin123 Posted May 21, 2017 Share Posted May 21, 2017 (edited) Hi I'm a newbie pilot with 9 short flights to its name (about 3.5 hrs total). All is going well but I'm struggeling with low (no) wind landings. When landing the ground seem to rush towards me to a point I'm sure I'm not going to be able to stop in a decent way. I'm watching movies of pilots landing from the pilots view (helmetcams) and I notice the same, the ground seems to really going fast under the pilots feet. Please look at this video from 1 minute 25 seconds. Notice how fast he seems to go until he touches down: Now because I see the ground rushing at me or moving under me with 'great speed' I prepare for impact and flare all the way until the point I even lift my legs to add more power to the flare. 'There's no way running of this speed' so I brace for impact... As you can read I sort of know what the problem is, but how do I solve this? Please let me know if you went through the same in the beginning as it will help me more then you know!
