But for the Gulfstream 280 there's a little-known technique that will enable the pilot to land smoothly with frightening consistency. The technique: moments before touchdown, the pilot pushes the control yoke forward, essentially flying the plane into the ground. To be clear, it is less of a "push" and more of a tiny application of forward pressure on the controls.
Here's how it works:
This landing method means that while the fuselage is moving towards the runway, the landing gear assembly is moving away from the runway. As a result, the main wheels will meet the runway with a slower vertical velocity, resulting in a reliably smooth touchdown.
