Re: Floating when landing

I seemed to have found the sweetspot to avoid floating. After disconnecting the AP, I’m trimming the plane down just a little until there’s a slight tendency of nose down. As soon as the GPWS finishes the 30 ft callout, I bring the throttles to idle quickly. It’s been working perfectly for me: if I ...

Re: Floating when landing

This is an interesting an informative thread. I find that getting a smooth landing is the most difficult part of the flight to master, and I have to admit that sometimes I encounter the floating phenomenon described here. So I have been viewing many real-world landing videos to study technique. I a...

Hi guys. Thanks for the answers. I know that P3D has a lot of limitations when it comes to creating the most realistic aerodynamic simulation, but here’s my two cents: Regarding retarding the throttles to idle before or at 50 ft, if you talk to real life 737 pilots and read most FCOMS, this is not...

Floating when landing

Hi guys. I’ve been wanting to discuss this with you for some time now. I’ve been using Sim-A for more than 5 years now, and I simply love it. However, I’ve always had issues related to floating to much during the flare. Yes, the real 737 does have a tendency to float, but I wonder if this tend...

Hi guys.

Were you able to install the driver available on the aviation megastore website in Windows 10 ?

Cheers

Well done FDS / Sim-Avionics

Hi guys. I’d like to drop some feedback for you ... With Brazil’s economy getting (a little) better, the airlines are hiring again. I have three friends who were approved in the written tests for the hiring process of a certain airline which operates the 737NG here. The second phase of the hirin...

FO Com Radio

Hi Mark Great job on the latest version. The flight model is also very good. One small issue I'm having though: my FO com radio is changing the frequencies very slowly. For example, if I go from 118.00 to 118.10, when I turn the knob, nothing happens, then 2 or 3 seconds later the new frequency (118...

Eduardo, Can I suggest 2 experiments? 1. Bypass USB hub and go DIRECT to PC.......see what happens. if this doesnt work....go to option 2. 2. Add Radios direct to Sim-AV main PC (i.e not a client) I'm pretty sure its not 1.94 because most people are using it with no issues. Hi, thanks for the answe...

I have the Ethernet radios connected to a PC with only the radios connected. I only use powered USB hubs, and my radios freeze very often. I use 1.94 (as a mere mortal, I don’t have access to 1.95).

Start switches solenoids

Hi guys. I've just installed a FDS Overhead (model FDS OH1 V2). Steve sent me the config file for sim-avionics and everything worked ok, except for the start switches which are not going back to OFF after N2 reaches 56% during engine start. (Checkbox is checked in the server). Is there a assignment ...

Flare technique

Hi guys

What technique do you guys use for the flare with the latest flight model (738) ? By which technique I mean at what height do you start to flare, the amount of trim you use for landing ... I’ve been floating a lot on my latest landings.

Cheers

Unfortunately I was wrong again. Sysboard controller crashing without the radios assigned. I have only the FMC’s and WX radar assigned on my remote pc, and still getting crashes very often. Mark/Steve, I’d appreciate some help on this one !!

Thanks
