whats the generic consensus on when to deploy Flaps on approach? from what I have seen and read most people recommends not more that first notch until you have the runway in sight. my usual practice (still in training) is to 2000 RPM in a Cherokee after FAF, that gets me to about 90 kts and 500 FPM until 200 AGL and then full flaps for landing. more often than I find myself too fast on the approach and float a bit trying get the energy dissipate but I am guessing that's just my sloppy power management. the idea behind not to go more than first notch is a safeguard when going missed in IMC. what does POA think?
