Something about 75MPH with full flaps on final made me nervous so ive been aiming for 80. Re-reading the POH it recommends 85MPH with no flaps then I get a 3MPH decrease in stall speed for each click of flaps. So, Is 75MPH what most people aim for with a full flap landing. I feel i have been coming in a little fast in the 80-85MPH range. so would you go 85 no flaps, then 82 1st click, 79 2nd click, 76 3rd click?
