Good evening/morning, to all my fellow pilots and controllers. I am creating this post to share my procedure to go from air-bourne to pavement on the training servers. After takeoff, I’ll set altitude to about 20,000 ft. to 25,000 ft. (Anything over 30,000 just takes too long to come down from.) If the airport is busy, I’ll circle around until I reach about 10,000 to 8,000 ft. Then I will request my Approach to the controller (Preferably ILS or GPS), once I reach final and have been cleared to land I’ll maintain 2,500 to 2,000 ft. My airspeed will be lowered to 160 or 150 (via AP), for large aircraft and 140 below for smaller aircraft’s. Just before I land I’ll shut off the auto pilot and reduce throttle to 0%. At this time, the aircraft touches down and I apply the brakes.
I’m sure my methods will definitely need to change once I reach the Expert Servers, but this is how I have dealt with my previous 50 landings in which only a select few have failed. I would love to hear on what you think I could improve on, Thanks!
United 838, frequency changed approved. Good, day.
