Angle of Attack for Airbus aircrafts

Whenever I use Airbus aircrafts, I see that the angle of attack is really low, and that makes it really difficult to descend, even with spoilers. Why is that? I’ve flown on an A380 and it takes them a mere 15 minutes to descend from 40K ft, while in infinite flight, it takes me 35-40 minutes to descend from 40K feet keeping the nose up. I see this problem with all other Airbus aircrafts too. Any reason?

I’m guessing they implemented the wrong physics for the aircraft. Just a guess :P

Sorry lol I meant 25 minutes but my point is the same. Oh and I’ve read operation manuals saying that with spoilers they can descend at 2300 ft/min so don’t be too surprised.

Rate of descend correlates with the IAS and Ground Speed. I’d be glad if they had similar physics on the A380 as they do on the 747s, which can descend at a realistic rate.

An airbus a380 descended at near 3000fpm look at my topic
