At 30feet RA, the aircraft slowly, gradually begins pitching down....a total of two degrees over eight seconds.
True or false?
FCOM says it reduces to 2 degrees nose down pitch over 8 seconds. It never reaches 2 deg nose down because the PF flares for the landing, but that is the "target". So the nose down pitch rate varies with the attitude memorised at 50' RA, hence the importance of being in the slot with the correct pitch at 50'.
