Descending: MP 16"/2300.
Slowing to the pattern: MP 15"/2300/pitch for 110-120 kts then 95 kts.
Abeam the touch down: Throttle to idle, Pitch for 75 kts, Mix rich, Flaps to 15 degrees (as soon as under Vfe 100 kts) and feed the Throttle in to 1800 RPM, trim.
45 degrees: Prop full forward, Flaps to 30 degrees and start descending turn for base leg.
Power closed as RWY made. Fly 75 kts down to leveling out.
