the 772 often gets ‘stuck’ when making tight turns while taxiing. I get the logic behind losing speed when turning but bro sometimes I need like 50%+ N1 to start moving in a 90 degree intersection. or even just to make a regular turn onto a runway… The a359 never gets “stuck” per say…is this a realistic characteristic of the 772 or its just not modelled properly?
Sometimes simbrief gives weird cruise speeds for aircraft, in my case it said cruise at M .80 transatlantic in the 772, though Im certain 777s typically cruise around m.83-.84. Is this based on real life (as in it detects the speed of other aircraft using the real-world route, or maybe an airway has a speed limit? Bc I am not using a NAT track, am running slightly south but parallel to the eastbound NAT). Or is it that sometimes simbrief doesnt know what it’s talking about?
When planning any sort of flight, including long hauls, I plan a particular approach for a particular runway with various manually-calculated altitudes. When I finally reach my destination, however, occasionally the runway I planned for isnt ideal (as in, has heavy tailwind/crosswind). In real life, do pilots literally alter the flightplan if their arrival runway isn’t what they planned for?
