I recently bought the A318, and wanted to try it making a short route between EGHI and EGLC.
My target altitude above the airport would be of 3500ft.
After reaching that altitude, flying with full flaps at 165kts, I started my descent so as to intercept the glideslope.
My problem is that the A320 family has a landing speed of 120-140kts, and as I started slowing down using the spoilers with 0% thrust to reach 135kts, my V/S went from -1000ft/m to -2000ft/m all of a sudden, creating a rather uncontrollable descent.
Can someone tell me at which height should I intercept EGLC’s glideslope and how to slow down to 135kts without diving like the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka?
I know might seem stupid, but I’m fairly new with the A320 family.
