I was in the process of landing the 777F when suddenly the plane just started sinking fast. Even after disengaging the autopilot, it was still going down till I had no choice than to quit the flight. Is this a known issue with others?
were you using VNAV?
Also did you use real world procedures? Like the approach plates
Yes I was. I was ready to disengage then fly manually into the airport
What were your VNAV altitudes set to?
I was going to say that could be a problem
3000 feet descending to 2000
Over what distance was it descending from 3000 to 2000
It was -500ft/min
Can you provide a replay of the flight?
I thought I was stalling but the airspeed was fine
How heavy were you?
Can you go to sharemyinfiniteflight.com, follow the instructions there and share the replay of the flight here.
I think thats the only way we will able to get to the bottom of this.
Ok. I would try that
The load was about 72%
That seems to heavy for landing…APPR does not work when you are above max landing weight…so that might explain why A/P disengaged.
For landing or takeoff?
I wasn’t using the APPR. VNAV was descending the aircraft when it suddenly began to sink. No stall warning and no nosedive. I disengaged the autopilot
The app closes when it starts to export the replay
We kinda need the replay to establish what went wrong…
