I have always wanted to know how to land my jet with zero thrust, and have never had the opportunity to practice it in the Sim.

The main thing I really want to know is, what is my glide at gear down (reduced flap, eg 737 gear down flap 15 or even 5). Is it 6 degrees? A guess at best.

If I knew, I might be able to get the aircraft in the right place to get it in. Eg, a gate of 5NM at 3000 would be 6 degrees. Higher, I could sideslip or add more flap. Lower? Delay gear or Screwed.
