Found and downloaded Unfortunately it only mentions 'proper' and 'desired' AoA, but since there are no AoA indexer lights on the Su-25 this info doesn't really help.

I've found flying an AoA so much simpler than trying to calculate the required landing speed for your weight. So much so that, when I'm in a pit without the AoA dial (or HUD equivalent), I feel a bit uneasy.

I must admit I've become really lazy with my landing procedures. Keep the runway threshold in the lower third of the HUD until it feels about right to start flaring

Well...there IS that approach, too. Truth be told, I’ve been known to go there, too.
