I found and snaffled this nice instruction from JamesChams, on the B377 subforum.
So this is what pilots actually do:
On any landing (Slow flight) we reverse our norms with the use of stick and throttle; its refered to "Slow flight rules." In normal flight, power (throttle) is used for speed and pitch (yoke/stick) is used for altitude. In slow flight these are reversed; so that pitch is use to maintain airspeed and power is used for altitude. Seems illogical but its actually what we do. So, ...
1. ... from your V-speeds charts, for the aircraft's weight & flap settings, you want to trim your aircraft's pitch to main a certain airspeed. So if your aiming for say, 120 KIAS, you want to trim the aircraft so that it neither decends or climbs without your inputs (hands-off). Try this in the default Cessna for practise since its harder in the B377.
2. ... then Pull the power back slightly and allow the nose to drop and give you a decent rate of:-
--- for precision approaches (ILS) NOT more than 500FPM
--- for non-precision approaches its 800FPM
Your aircraft will then automatically want to maintain the airspeed/pitch setting it is configured for. (Note: modern jets like to drop somewhere between 500-1000FPM for these approaches but, if your dropping out at 1000FPM like modern day jet you'll land hard and unnecessarily stress the aircraft/passengers).
3. ... Finally, once established, you shouldn't need to jocky the throttle or pull/push on the yoke/stick until the *flare stage" of the landing to arrest the decent and touch down softly on the touchdown markers and with plenty of room on the runway.
The trick here is establishing control ahead of the aircraft and placing it into the configuration you want it to be in instead of playing "catch-up" behind it. It takes practise and these procedures are there to help you with that. This is just a general outline of what is done. Here is an example of me doing it while explaining it to my passengers: Flight with JFC-3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3jxyc0wpyQ
Notice, I'm not having to make great changes in the pitch/power right down to when I had to flare it. There was a bit of a crosswind which I was banking into. Combating that is all you should need to do to keep it aligned on the centerline. The rest was completely setup before hand.
I've seen this discussed many times before, but I finally "got" what's being said, from his explanation:
when you have the craft trimmed for level flight at a low speed, then you drop your throttle, causing the
plane to slow, nose downward, and thus fall, it will gain speed as it falls, and the trim will cause it to
level out ( though you may need to give it a little help if you're too low to let it find its way by itself)
so it is easy to maintain your speed at the correct value as you slide in, dropping altitude onto the
