    I use trust reversers as well. However, if landing in Kastrup on 04L with my MD80 I might keep the nose up and use the brakes to spare the reverses.

    Yes, reversing the thrust is very helpful.

    But you have to push the "photo"/"screenshot" button quite fast if you want to show that device in action.

    I use thrust reverse on everything I fly: 767-300, 767-400, 757-200, 737-800, Airbus A320. I mostly do this because it follow real procedures on the flight deck. Although the amount of reverse thrust will vary depending on conditions, I will try to stay close to idle reverse in good conditions, but will go full reverse if I've landed long or the weather is not great.

    I use reverse thrust on all my landings (if the aircraft has thrust reversers) as I am doing it in my real MD11F as well. I haven't done an MD11 landing without T/R so far.
    On the 737 I had a couple of flights where they were deactivated. So didn't use them then

    Like flaps, I use it if I need it. Just like I would in a real airplane...though I've obviously never flown anything with reverse thrust.

    Erwin, I also use TR on DC-8's and only DC-8's unless im landing at Edwards AFB.

    Off course I use it. A fully loaden DC-8 won't stop without

    Yes, because it helps reduce the braking distance

    No, because it adds more steps in landing

    No, because I dont see any difference in the braking distance.

    Do anyone of you use Thrust reverse on landing and why?

    I, myself don't as I feel more comfortable using brakes and GS only as it decreades 2 steps- Operate the thrust reverse and stow the thrust reverse.
Working...
