"On final approach in a Cessna 172, most pilots begin leveling out much higher than sport pilots do in LSAs. As you flare a larger airplane, you can pull back on the stick or yoke a little bit at a time, slowly bleeding off your speed until the airplane's stall horn goes off and you touch down. You fly light-sport aircraft to the ground. When we instruct in our Remos G-3, for example, we teach a slightly steep final approach angle with a speed of 70 mph, which is kept until five to 10 feet above the ground. Only then do we begin to lift the nose, and even then only to initially level the airplane, not flare it. As the airplane is coasting down the runway low, gently pulling back on the stick as the speed drops will raise the nosewheel enough to let the mains take the brunt of landing, and the airplane touches down while it is still "flying." Avoiding shallow approaches and "dragging" the airplane in by the propeller, Standard Category pilots will better manage the airplane's energy, conserving it for the landing flare and avoiding many of the pitfalls pilots face when transitioning to sport aircraft."
