oh i meant stuck when taxiing on ground
For number 1 maybe your taking the turns to sharply?
Well, if you’re turning sharply, you’re definitely going to lose speed. Make shallower turns.
Noticed this. Just ease into it a little bit, and don’t get caught off guard so you don’t need to make any super sharp turns.
You can override the cruise speeds Simbrief gives by choosing your designated cruise speed on the main page.
Yes, but you can use windy.com or something to plan your arrival. It doesn’t get it 100% of the time but it’s good most of the time.
I’ve faced that issue as well, and yes making shallower turns does work but this can’t be applied while parking, if you take shallower turns, there’s a high chance you’ll not be able to align the aircraft with the parking centerline.
When you are talking about the 772 getting ‘stuck’, what speed are you taking the 90 degrees turn at? And also are you taxiing with one engine? Can you provide this information and then maybe I’ll be able to help.
ive also noticed that the B772 absolutely sucks at tight turns where the A359 and other non-reworked aircraft dont struggle at all. it is most evident when turning into a parking stand
I generally begin the turn about 2 meters before my nose gear reaches the parking centerline, doing 8-10kts GS, which i believe is pretty much how its done IRL
for the B772, i have to begin the turn way earlier, and it doesnt look legit at all, and it makes lining up with the stopbar difficult
i try to approach tight turns (runway/parking stand) around 8 kts with both engines running, then it just drastically reduces speed and i need a lot of power to reach even half a knot. the effect of turning nose wheel seems exaggerated in the 772
You should only need to turn it 45 degrees maximum to make most turns?
Which turn have you struggled with, I will try to recreate
This is realistic, in real life however pilots often use differential thrust to line up or go through tight angles. Basically pushing the left throttle for a left turn. We can’t do this in IF.
Yes the 772 cruises faster but depending on the cost index you may have to use a lower cruise speed. Another reason to cruise at 0.80 is turbulent air.
Pilots have to regularly check the weather before and during the flight. It’s really easy now, you just have to add the initial fix for your STAR and insert the actual arrival and your desired runway 20min before arriving.
Furthermore you can still land within a 5-10kts downwind but why bother if you can use the other runway.
