Yes, for this sort of non-static verb, the simple present is seldom (if ever) used for the present time, but it is commonly used for the future.
With this sort of verb and for single actions/events of an incidental or routine nature, I think the real choice is between the simple present and the future progressive ("We land in 10 minutes" vs "We will be landing in 10 minutes").
I suppose the "simple future" with "will" would be used
(a) to express a promise, intent, purpose, or prediction "I will land this plane if it kills me", "You will/shall die! )
(b) like the simple present, for a habitual event/action, but in the future (future time, frequentative): "The plane will leave every Friday at 4 o' clock."
And yesterday, of course, someone might have said "The plane is going to land on top of that other plane." (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nnZwCn7IMY
