What kind of advices are these? I NEVER used a 400 speed film in my life and was able to shot hundreds of landings with no problem. Any 200 or even 100 ASA is enough and you don't need a shutter speed of 1000, beggining with 250 is enough in a sunny day.

Depending on what your zoom and Fstops are, you will need various shutter speeds, but not any film over 100ASA! For 50mm, 1/125 should be good for a beginner, while for 200mm, you will want about 1/500. As you get better you will be able to pull off much longer exposures, some people can get down to about 1/8 for 50mm!
For a plane landing on a sunny day, I'm going to guess a zoom of 100-200mm, exposure of 1/250-1/500th, and FStop of 11-16, with 100 speed film.
