Runway Landing

The trick to landing safely and smoothly is to gradually descend. Don’t try and tip the plane too much or you’ll just bounce off the runway. Ease back on the accelerator as you are near the ground.

As the title of the challenge suggests, you will be aiming to land properly on a runway and then taxi into a final checkpoint and then finally coming to a complete stop all in one fell swoop.

You will start up in the air with the runway in the distance. Keep your acceleration up while gradually descending. The key here is to do everything gradually rather than trying to quickly land. The first checkpoint is further up the runway so you should be aiming to land nearby so you don’t have to drive the length of the runway. This will save a ton of time.

As soon as the timer goes out, start reducing altitude. Do not decelerate just yet but wait until you pass the start of the runway. Now decelerate just a bit and lower the landing gear. Keep reducing speed and aim to land just in front of the first checkpoint. Apply the brakes enough that you can then use the rudders to taxi to the final checkpoint and then apply them fully to stop.
