I have been playing IF lately and I notice that I always bounce whenever I try to land. My speed is correct and I feel my approach is also on the glide slope. Can anyone help me,thanks .
Also if you wish, please put in a tutorial for landing the a380 as it my favourite aircraft.
P.S. I am only a beginner and I am gradually learning the game, so please don’t be harsh.
Maybe try to lift your house higher when you are about to touchdown. When you hear the ‘50’ callout reduce your thrust to 0% and gradually lift your nose up. This should result in a soft, no-bounce touchdown:)
@PilotAtWork380. MaxSez: An Airplane is an Airplane big or small they have similar aerodynamic characteristics. Each have flap settings, speeds and angle of attach for landing and take off. So know your aircrafts capabilities which can be found in the Tutorials or via Google. Here’s a video by UTube which is an excellent visual source.
All things considered “Practice makes Perfect” on the kiddie Server.
(A TOUCH DOWN TAKES 2 STEP “ Round Out then Flare”!)
One thing not to forget to mention: practise a lot! you’re not the only one who didn’t grease his first landing. I’ve been really active in this game for around 10 months and once in a while I have bad landings for whatever reason. I’ve been practicing on solo a lot, just to improve my landings skills. Believe it or not, they get better and better.😉
I’d suggest you to not only watch the tutorials on YouTube as mentioned above, but also take some time to do 2-5 landings in solo every day or week.
You are stabilized at 1000 ft 140 kt flaps full gear down.
50 above runway threshold
20 retard throttle (power to 0 in Infinite Flight)
10 rudder alignment
Attention: in real life with A380 if you miss touch down you can stop more the 300 meters away. So you see.
