How do I land without my nose pitching up?

The majority of the time I want to land my plane my nose pitches which gets me multiple speed violations I need some help.

This is a very vague post. What stage of flight is this occurring? Flare, Final, Approach, etc…

I’m not fully understanding your question. When you land you want a 5-7 deg nose up attitude or else you would land flat. The nose pitching up shouldn’t be causing a speed violation unless you’re landing on a blast pad or the taxiway.

If you are descending then control it. Plenty of forum tutorials for this.

This also belongs in #general #support is for technical issues. This is a pilot issue.

If you are getting speed violation while landings that means that you are landing way to fast. The link @American232 posted should be helpful

Welcome to the forum and to the IFC , landing can be very difficult and hard to master, remember to always have a plan and to watch your speed. Try descending from a distance long enough to where you dont have to pitch down so much. Also visit #tutorials as there is tons of information on how to successfully land.

Maybe try the tutorial that is in the app already. It goes thru take off and landing ops.

Hi @SpiritA319 👋🏼. The reason why your nose pitches up can be cause when deploying the flaps at higher speeds than what they are designed for. This varies by aircraft.

Make sure to visit #tutorials

I hope this helps!

Landing speeds for aircrafts are rarely greater than 160- check your weight settings an make sure it is green

Generally if you can’t maintain a nose-up descent [CRJ’s incorrect physics aside], it means your flap extension doesn’t match your soeed. If you extend full flaps at 200 knots, you’re going nose-down, no way around it.

Land slowly. Extend your flaps in steps as you gradually decrease your speed.

Try to keep you nose pitched up about 5 degrees with the aim aid [the actual name completely escapes me now, sorry] “pitched” down at about 2.5-3 degrees. Lower speed and extend flaps to maintain that configuration.

HUD is the word your looking for and vector of travel should be flat at 3-5 degrees pitch when landing,useful advice đź‘Ť

Right, at flare, you want to level out of course. Unless you want to pile drive a hole through the runway. :)

@Tim_B. MaxSez: the Name that escapes you is in the HUD, its call the "Velocity Vector " the little winged creature that show your actual line of advance, that bounces around causes by instability it and the “Bore-sight”, the little “V” in the redecal lead the way! Regards…

Thank you, sir!

Don’t know why it was just eluding me. Couldn’t bring it from the back to the front.

Thanks.

Tutorial in the app does not cover landing. Only taking off and manoeuvring up, down, left, and right.

Try deploying flaps at around 145-150 KTS. You shouldn’t be above those speeds inside of the approach cone unless ATC tells you other wise.

I understand that you would like to do something like this.


But it takes years of practice, dedication and hard work.

LOL wat?? Please, why would you recommend someone pitch the nose like that?

Yes, years of hard work and tireless dedication. That’s a beautifully​ executed 2nm 9,000ft final approach commonly​ used by United Airlines.

Stunning
