Ok, every time I try to takeoff in a Dash 8, the plane turns and tries to slide off the runway. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Can someone please help me. Thanks :)
Its probably the wind.
If you mean in solo also check the wind
No, I just took off from KJFK on Advanced.
Go to KJFK now and check the wind
The wind was at 162*, at 7kts
You took off with head wind or tail wind ?
I think it was a headwind. I took of runway 13R.
It might be the Calibration
I always calibrate my device. Plus, it was around takeoff speed (95-115kts)
Well…i gave out all the possible things that might been the problem.
Sorry. Hope someone else can solve it. Thanks for the help :)
I have the same problem even in solo with no wind. Its just sliding off to the right
Yes! Is it like turning when you don’t want it to?
Yep. That’s why I prefer not to fly the Dash 8. However, you can’t learn without trying!
What are your flap and trim settings? Also, what speed are you landing at?
I said take off …
