The F-16 is sensitive to airspeed on landing, and needs to be below maximum landing weight in order to handle correctly. Airspeed, if in doubt, should be 170 knots with gear down.

Flaps are automatic, as are slats. Aim for 8 degrees AoA with desired descent rate, usually 500 feet per minute, and allow the airplane to settle. Slow steadily to 150 knots.

Touchdown should be with throttle to idle and a gentle flare to 130 knots at wheels down.
