So I have a quest asks me the minimum landing distance req for conditions listed... one being -45 degrees of flap... it referencing the echo landing weight chart...
So I would still work it out as per normal... it would just mean that I’d stop ina shorter distance because I have those flaps out... but I still need a min landing distance for the weight?

The landing chart has been designed based on full flap settings. So the figures you obtain by using the chart assume you are landing with full flap. There's no need to make any further allowances. The landing weight you obtain from the chart is the landing weight with full flap.
