Tell me then could a slip be one technique used to bleed off altitude inside the final approach fix? Is it a technique not practiced or perhaps not chosen by pilots of larger aircraft.
i just got out of a 777-200 sim....(the son of Boeing's chef of flight operations safety has some perks!)

Boeing (and all large aircraft) have alot of drag devices to slow down...

30 degree's of flaps are really sticking out there..

the only time you would want to slip is when you REALLY want to drop like a rock!

but it is really fun to use in a little bug-smasher! really gets the blood pumping in someone who dosent know whats happening..

the problem i had during the sim was kicking the crab out before touchdown.. if you don't get rid of it all the way... its one hell of a side-load..(threw my dad to the floor in the back of the sim(full motion is very fun)
