I just landed a 747-400 at Changi Singapore, disengaged the AP at around 4000ft,how it should be done in modern aircraft with a lazy captain.
I flew a manual flight from Newcastle to Heathrow, which I couldn't exactly describe as fun like some people, but it was interesting. High Concentration was required.
Also with regard to the descent rates, don't really bother with 'em until you are about to land and even still with practice you should not be looking at the VSI.
In aviation, it is suprising how VFR everything is, and sometimes little refernece to instruments like the VSI.
As long as you dont ever go beyond 2000ft/min in a dive. Try to avoid diving when landing. Do not flare too much. When you are approaching it is tempting to pull back unecessarily. Keep the nose just slightly above the horizon.
Also, as long as your wheels touch the runway, I wouldn't worry about it.
I'm sure this hasn't helped you at all, but it is a little useful advice.
Finally, FS says land at 140kts in the B734
If you have about 10% fuel remaining as you should do on landing, then touch down at about 120kts.
Our landing in the 767 was about 128kts for touchdown.
Keep it smooth.
Dont go too fast to avoid a quick descent onto a runway and then find you cant touch the ground, retract the spoilers and slow too quickly and make a firm touch on the runway.
Make your speed exactly right just before touchdown. Decrease your descent rate slowly, and you will roll on to the runway just nicely.
