I’m still at grade 1 and that is very annoying because I need only more landings to become grade 2. Can you tell me how to make more landings?
A LOT of touch and goes. Spawn in with a small plane (Cessna/Cirrus are the best) and just keep doing touch and goes
But sometimes when I land it shows in my stats the same amount of landings
That’s because you aren’t landing fully. You have to land and slow reset and take off. All wheels must touch the ground.
KEDW is a great place, lots of runways at different lengths, added with a light aircraft you’ll soon clock up your flight time and landings! As already mentioned, ensure all wheels are on the deck, slow down a little as you reset for takeoff, then get ready for rotate.
Edit: With KEDW you can help improve on your pattern work
You could find two quiet and very close proximity airports and fully complete landings and taxi to gate. Example would be EGPK and EGPF in UK.
EHAM is strongly recommended by me. There are multiple runways crossing each other. You easily get a couple of landings with the firat 5 minutes.
Thank you very much! Everyone was very helpful
I highly recommend the Cessna X, very small and fast.
Oh yeah EHAM is great for touch and gos
Runway Hopping is easy as they are all bunched together
Depending on winds my patterns usually look something like this;
Just hop in a turboprop on casual and you’ll be right
And i do fully land and it does not update my landings
The idea behind landings being a key factor to determining your grade is so you practice and learn how to properly approach and land. Just doing as many “landings” as you can in a short period of time defeats the purpose if you are not concerned about actually learning how to properly approach and land.
The suggestions given above are great if you want to rack up XP and your landing counts if you are already proficient at it. However, since you are grade 1 - I’d suggest you do the right thing - learn how to properly fly patterns and practice doing proper touch and goes.
All wheels must touch the ground and your landing count may take a few minutes to update.
also when landing make sure your GROUND SPEED not airspeed goes below 40kts or else in my experience it dosent seem to count.
That is incorrect. Landings count despite your speed. You just need to make sure all wheels touch the ground. If your info was true I’d have 1/3 of my landings as I fly a lot of patterns on jets and thus never slow down that much in between touch and goes.
well since i do landings in props that might be why it seemed so, thanks for the info
If you don’t like GA and you like airliners try KCVG here is why I recomend It is never busy unlike EHAM
60 in an hour?? Sounds great and all but it’s important to remember that it can potentially come around and bite ya 90 days later. To keep your Grade you must maintain a number of landings on a rolling 90 day period.
I’d recommend you plan it out over a course of a few days and maybe do between 5-10 landings per day.
For example: Unless you keep your per day landings count high, you’ll just drop a few grades if you don’t pay attention and be forced to fly on the Training Server until you get your landings back up, which could be at least 60 in this case.
