That isn't the issue, the issue is that if you're maintaining the glideslope, and you're light you will do so either by flying slower or by flying at a lower AoA to generate less lift, and if you're...

Ok, you're right about that, that the horizontal component does affect that, but you can still maintain the same glideslope by flying slower, personally I would consider the glideslope and airspeed...

Nope, I've been talking about all the factors involved, glideslope, and airspeed and weight, and you know that.

No, if you're not forgetting it, then you're ignoring it, the weight of the aircraft is an issue, since it affects stall speed, personally I don't care about AoA, if I'm landing light, I fly the...
