This looks absolutely amazing and will help me when flying a new aircraft. Great work!
Unless you have first hand IRL knowledge of the aircraft profiles people need to stop posting about this because 99.9% of the time they are absolutely incorrect.
Aren’t you supposed to use Flaps 1 + F on the A350 when taking off?
This could be true but Flaps 2 works very well for me, and 90% of the reference is used from @DeerCrusher’s topic below. I have tested this myself as I fly the Airbus A350 a lot. Maybe one quarter of the weight would apply the 1+F flap setting.
Hey, i dont like to seem like i am criticizing users but i do notice a few innaccurate things.
Side note: About 75% of my flights are on A B737 or A320 family aircraft.
But i noticed that you put the entire A320 family as one, i get that they very similar but when it comes to flying and speeds they should not be in the same category. I only fly the A320 & A321 in that family. They have noticably different performance on takeoff.
Also for your landing speed and power may or may not be innaccurate, for the power input your numbers are very high, that might be because you have a lower descent rate but i usually descend -1000 FPM to -800 FPM before flare with aircraft maybe just below 50% load, i consistently use 30% to 40% power with Full flaps at 130 to 140 knot approach speed. So to make more sense of your data it would help to have more info such as your descent rate and other performance information.
Then for the 737 i see you use 5° flaps, in real life 737’s often use 10 or 15 degree flaps.
I hope i don’t sound rude, if you have any questions about what I have said please feel free to PM me.
Thank you for dedicating your time and effort into creating this!
One correction I spotted is that the A380 lands around 135 knots, approaches at around 140 knots, and trim should be around 40% for a smooth landing. :)
Wow amazing thread and so useful, gonna look back at this many times so I’m gonna bookmark it ;)
Thanks you for letting me know, I rarely fly the Airbus A321, so I will investigate the speed difference for each variant if possible. For all variants of the A320 family I am sure they are not too far away from each other.
I will try your option. I’ll possibly adjust the power setting of the A320. While flying with EIVA, I use the Airbus A320 80% of the time.
Adding a descent rate is not a bad idea. I didn’t add it in the first place because of possible inaccuracies due to winds, flaps and power setting.
If the Boeing 737 does usually set their flaps to 10 to 15 degrees in real life, I will make light changes to the table.
And by all means you are not being rude or hating on the Tutorial, since I have asked myself for the feedback. Once again, I’ll make some minor changes and thanks for letting me know!
Will check this out. Thanks.
Wow!!! Great work!!!
I think you must have mistaken with this topic because I do have IRL knowledge of the general aircraft profiles and I am totally correct since they all work for me perfectly. These profiles are referred to official aircraft training websites and pilot tutorials. Yet a lot of the aircraft models are outdated and are sometimes are a little bit different to the profiles in the real world. I hope you understand.
Why are some of your power settings so high? 108% N1 seems absurdly high and unnecessary for a takeoff on a runway of proper length.
The heavier the aircraft is, the more power is required in order to maintain the air speed. I mostly use the power of 108% N1 for aircraft with a weight of 75% or more as the rotating speed increases per weight. Sometimes I must be sure that the aircraft will not stall with such a heavy weight.
If you think my throttle power is a bit too much, I will investigate this in my own time.
Really well made post!
Just one thing regarding the A320family:
A final approach speed of 130kts is too low for the A321 with a normal approach load and even for the A320 in my experience.
Yes but N1 normally should not exceed 100% for a takeoff, there’s nothing wrong with using more runway length. Airlines use derated thrust as runway length allows to minimize engine wear.
I’ll check this out during my own time. Thanks for letting me know.
This is amazing…great work!
This is really useful, thanks for sharing and also inviting feedback!
Thanks for sharing this will be very useful for me and others!
