Brief description on what happens in landing after touchdown to stop a plane. FSX Simulation. Important procedure for stopping aircraft .

According to Prof.Steven R. Hall, professor of aeronautics and astronautics and a pilot, MIT(Massachusetts Institute of Technology). In an emergency, brakes alone can stop a commercial jet, but the heat produced may be enough to melt the plane’s tires, he says.

‘Small, propeller aircraft do use brakes almost exclusively to slow down. Larger turboprop aircraft have propellers that can be adjusted to produce rearward thrust after touchdown, rapidly slowing the aircraft. Commercial jet transport aircraft come to a halt through a combination of brakes, spoilers to increase wing drag and thrust reversers on the engines. – Deborah Halber ( source )
