Overweight landings may be safely accomplished by using normal landing procedures and techniques. There are no adverse handling characteristics associated with overweight landings. If stopping distance is a concern, reduce the landing weight as much as possible. At the captain's discretion, reduce weight by holding at a low altitude with a high drag configuration (gear down) to achieve maximum fuel burn-off.

Analysis has determined that, when landing at high gross weights at speeds associated with non-normal procedures requiring flaps set at 15 or less, maximum effort stops may exceed the brake energy limits. The gross weights where this condition can occur are well above maximum landing weights. For these non-normal landings, maximize use of the available runway for stopping.
