To keep altitude and regulation airspeed under 10,000 my plane tends to have a 5 to 10 degree of nose up to keep altitude and airspeed with auto pilot on.
I’m assume it’s something with my flap settings. If anyone is knowledgeable about the 777-300ER regarding flap speeds while in a pattern and or approach please help me out. I’m always trying to increase my realism :).
How fast is your speed? Under 10k get it should be at least 200 for climbing me personally I use 240. A min after take off I’m able to retract all my flaps and accent normally!
@Dacus1994 As a matter of mutual interest;
The Virtual Pilots Operation Handbook (POH) for the 777-200 produced by Delta Virtual is avail free as a PDFs on line. V’s and Flaps as posted can be extrapolated for the 300ER as a starter. The POH for the 700-300ER was also accessible in a free PDF form. I’m useing the free Delta Virtual version… Hope this helps. Regards, Max Sends
Vref30 speeds per weight (lbs)
And from the Vref30 you can get the other speeds:
Vref0___Vref30 + 80 kn
Vref1___Vref30 + 60 kn
Vref5___Vref30 + 40 kn
Vref15__Vref30 + 20 kn
Vref20__Vref30 + 20 kn
Vref25__Vref30 + 10 kn
Notice that on approach only the Vref30 speed has a standard additive of 5 kn.
The 772 and the 77W have pretty different physics.
For the 772 there’s the Deltavia manual, right. But for the 77W I had to search through many handbooks for getting the speeds…
I like 15 degree flap on T/O…retract at 220 kts
When approaching landing airport, about 20-25 miles out I am already at 200kts. I begin my flap down while descending. At 200kts/1degree flap. 198kts/5degree flaps, etc.
when I am at 1< mile out, I am at 180kts/30 degree flaps…locked & loaded.
I manual landing & power because I fly pretty heavy.
But hey, that’s just me. What do I know
180/30 at 1 mile. So what speed do you actually touchdown?
160kts. Anything lower, I will crash. Fly Heavy. Can’t do the 140kts landing without booting 100 passengers and luggage. Lol
