The 757 is a beautiful update, but when slowing speed on autopilot, it takes a very very long time to slow down. I was flying into EFKT yesterday, no wind was present. At FL150 I was at 280 knots and set speed to 250 however by the time I was at FL100 it was struggling to slow down. My descent V/S was -1400fpm. Ultimately I had to use the speed break and set flap 1 to slow her down. Has anyone else had this issue?
yes, it take a long time
This is normal as the 757 is a slippery one that can gain speed with the slightest of VS. It just means you have to pay attention during descent much like other planes.
Ahh the makes sense. Thanks for the reply Chris, much appreciated
