TOUCHDOWNThe touchdown is the gentle settling of the airplane onto the landing surface. The roundout and touchdown should be made with the engine idling, and the airplane at minimum controllable airspeed, so that the airplane will touch down on the main gear at approximately stalling speed. As the airplane settles, the proper landing attitude is attained by application of whatever back-elevator pressure is necessary.
Normal and Crosswind Approach and Landing:8. Touches down smoothly at approximate stalling speed (ASEL).
6. Touches down smoothly at the approximate stalling speed, at or within 400 feet (120 meters) beyond a specified point, with no side drift, and with the airplane's longitudinal axis aligned with and over the runway center/landing path.
If the winds are gusty or variable, you probably don't want to do full-stall landings.

This bit me on Sunday at Harvey Field in front of a few hundred people at the Jump Center (anyone know what was going on?). Gust stopped and I fell out of the sky a couple feet early, just like Al.In the interest of full disclosure I was carrying extra speed for gust factor earlier in the day for all my landings at BVS which were all perfect greasers.
