Hello fellow pilots. First of all I LOVE infinite flight and here is my question: the Boeing 777 (any version of the 777) is very difficult to slow down even with the spoilers especially when descending more than 1500 feet per minute. I haven’t tried any other heavy Boeing aircraft yet but Airbus plane slow down easier I think. Also with 90 percent thrust power (about 95% N1) the 777 is speeding up very fast - so I climb at about 6500 feet per minute) with a thrust of about 85% N1 in order to not exceed 250 knots below 10000. I have noticed that I am not the only pilot with this difficulty. Any help and any advice will be very much appreciated. What I would suggest to anyone would be to start descending before the equal distance (e.g. 37000ft÷1000…37×3 = 111nm - start descending at 120nm distance) and reduce descend rate later on so you can slow down easier. The landing gear actually helps a lot to slow down, but I need to be at 250 knots or less below 10000 and extending landing gear above 10000 is not that much recommended. Thank you very much, I wish you all safe and happy flights
The reworked 772 has nearly exactly accurate physics, it acts like it would in real life. I don’t think this is a problem about the sim 🤔
Also, 90% thrust is not really used in real life, I would say 85% is fine.
Why don’t try VNAV, it will control the descend phase.
By the way, welcome to the community!
Thank you very much for your help and for your welcome. I’m very happy to be here
Yeah, the 777 is very slippery. When you need to reduce your speed, start raising the nose (lowering the negative VS). Try and keep the throttle on 0% as much as possible until intercepting the glideslope. Adjust the vertical speed accordingly. In the 777, you will find you descend slower than other aircraft. But, I think this should be in #general as it isn’t a technical issue wth the app. Welcome to the community by the way!
Yes it is under normal condition in the A320 ATHR above FL290 ish
I was talking about the 772…
Correct me if I am wrong.
It’s not necessary.
