I don’t know whether this has already come up, but after researching a while on the forum I haven’t found a topic covering this and I’m wondering whether I’m the only one experiencing this.
Today I was on final with my A330 for RWY24 at EDDK. At 2000ft AGL I was fully configured and established on the localizer, slight crosswind of 8knts.
The aircraft load was 50%, I had lots of fuel left…
So I was approaching with about 130kts and everything was looking good. Pitch was about 2°, airspeed and vertical speed constant, just a normal approach.
Then, at about 1500ft AGL it happened: All of a sudden the flight path indicator dropped to a pitch of about -5° on the HUD and the VS increased from -700 to almost -2000ft/min, as if I got a lot heavier from one second to another. I had to increase the airspeed from 130 to 160kts to regain control of the aircraft.
Note: I don’t fly the A330 that often, since the global update like three times or so, but already there I’ve had the same issue. I just remember that prior to global,I never had this problem at all, no matter which weight configuration I used.
Sorry if this has already been brought up, but as I’ve said, I didn’t find a similar topic so far.
