Congrats!!

I got mine in the Caravan.....haven't really used it but it looks good on the cert. (at least that's what I WANT to believe) :confused:
Here’s how I envision the hand-flown ILS to 1800 rvr in the van.
-intercept glide slope, flaps 10, trim and power for 90 kts
-set dh bug for 200’
-take nap
-wake up when dh tone sounds
-land airplane

Probably mentioned before, but I have a logbook entry with two approaches and one landing in a Van at MCO.
First approach went as you describe, up until my approach clearance got cancelled at around FAF with a 90 degree turnoff and climb instructions due to 767 behind me.
I think that was about the last approach I flew below big boys Vref.

Fortunately in the dial-a-disaster box you can fly at any safe speed that is comfortable.

90kts? Ain't nobody got time for that. The 10,11,12 strategy - Flaps 10 & 1,100lbs of torque = 120kts.
