    While I am not near you, I am interested on techniques you may be learning.

    I am IA rated, and fly my 1976 Sundowner.

    I was taught to fly 90 knot final with one notch of flaps. Because of
    the higher speed, I have to put forward pressure on the yoke to
    maintain the 90 knot glide slope speed. I do trim for landing so once
    I am at DH on an ILS, all I do is chop the power and let the nose rise
    on it's own since I have it trimmed for landing.

    I hold 90 knots all the way down to the missed approach fix (MAP). I
    run about 1900 on the RPM down the glide slope. Higher if winds are
    strong and lower if I have a tail wind. (not unusual for airports that
    have only one ILS)

    This gives me that extra guard on getting the mains down first as
    going from instrument to visual is enough workload without having to
    adjust trim 200 feet above ground.

    Whatever works for you, but I was taught a variety of techniques.
    Including a run down the ILS at full throttle (130 MPH) as well as
    the 90 Kts. The high speed runs are for when you have a Beechjet on
    a final behind you and the controller wants you to keep your speed
    up. I've also been "chased" down the clidelsope by MD80s.

    With this variety of techniques you have to trim for each stage.

    But whatever works for you.
