Such an interesting discussion! Other than an evil desire to perform airshow maneuvers, I've never wanted to perform a constant speed approach to a dramatic flare at the end, much less a 180 quick stop All of my instructors always wanted to see a steadily decreasing speed with the ship maintained in a nearly level attitude. While I've certainly had to deal with situations where an OGE hover can't be accomplished, that did not require carrying a whole 60KN, more like 30-40KN, and of course the flare is not so dramatic at that speed.
