Here's the same post I made in the short filed landing thread.

I'd love to get other pilot ideas, opinions and interested if anyone else has used/using this wheel landing technique?

Here it is again;

Bill White ( He passed it along via the web)

AGAIN TO CLARIFY THIS GREAT TECHNIQUE.

YOU TURN ON FINAL APPROX 1 MILE OUT

ADD FULL FLAPS AND REDUCE THROTTLE TO 12"-14" TO GET 500 FPM DESCENT AT 60 KTS INDICATED (65 IF ITS WINDY).

THE AIRCRAFT IS TRIMMED TO A LEVEL
ATTITUDE.

YOUR PLANE IS PARALLEL TO THE GROUND(HORIZONTAL) ALL THE WAY DOWN FINAL AND THERE'S NOTHING TO DO BUT ENJOY THE RIDE, UNLESS THERES A CROSSWIND TO CORRECT FOR. UNTIL YOU GET ABOUT 20' ABOVE THE RUNWAY THEN THE ONLY THING YOU DO IS PULL (EASE ON) SLIGHT BACK PRESSURE FOR ONLY 3-4 SECONDS
AND RELEASE IT TO ASSUME ORIGINAL LEVEL ATTITUDE.

THIS WILL LOWER YOUR DESCENT TO AROUND 200 FPM UNTIL TOUCHDOWN.

THE ONLY THING THAT CHANGED WAS YOUR RATE OF DECENT AT THE 20' AGL POINT.

THAT'S WHY THIS WORKS SO WELL. YOU'RE NEVER CHASING OR WAITING FOR ANYTHING TO HAPPEN. YOU'RE IN COMPLETE CONTROL ALL THE WAY
