Still have not sussed out speeds and rate of decent with this lawnmower but getting better. Must get landing rate better - but how !

Landing rate too high for a turboprop. The Dash 8 isn't like a jet, you land it straight in with minimal flare. Try to maintain about 120kts till 100ft above and then de-throttle to glide in. Landing speed at 3/4 flaps (std) is about 93-105kts.
