Chapter 22

Performance – Landing

Abstract

The chapter presents the fundamental relations of the landing phase, including the equation of motion for a landing ground run and its kinematics. Then, several methods to solve the equation of motion are presented. Finally, landing performance data for selected single and multi-engine GA aircraft are tabulated to provide the designer with comparison to own estimation.
