Roger,

Although ultimately every landing is a little different from every other one due to winds and other factors, it is somewhat like learning to ride a bicycle if you can remember back then. One would think how in the world will I ever be able to stay upright on two wheels, then all of a sudden one day you are and you never look back. Now you probably couldn't not stay up on a bike even if you tried. It is the same thing with landings. At first it seems impossible to do this but then one day you do it. Your body and your brain form some new synapses and it clicks in.

I learned to fly a helicopter before learning to fly an airplane. My body had to learn a completely new thing in order to hover. Then when I transitioned to airplanes I had a tough time learning to land because it was so different from landing a helicopter, from the sight picture (which you are struggling with) to airspeed and a whole host of things. It took me a long time, but eventually it too "clicked in" and I could land the airplane. Often it wasn't pretty, but I got it down without bending anything. You will too.

Don't beat yourself up, let your eyes and your brain work at the problem and you will be able to land. I guarantee it.

Anne
