The Nosedive Challenge

Did it:
Air France A320

Glad I wasn’t flying on that flight!

What was your FPM?

You mean on the air speed indicator? Those are overspeed lines are they not?

Yes they are, he was just kidding :)

Like 70000 FPM. Around that @Henrik :-)

Will try it later today ;)

How to do it:
Step 1: Open IF
Step 2: Press "Fly solo"
Step 3: Take any airport (Denver region not recommended)
Step 4: Take an Airbus A321
Step 5: Press "Fly"
Step 6: Set weight to light
Step 7: Climb to FL410, use full throttle
Step 8: Accelerate to 290-300 KIAS
Step 9:Pitch down 90 degrees, keep full throttle
Step 10: Enjoy!

Note: High negative trim is needed during pitch down, -90% should be good.
Any aircraft should do, I used an A321.

I’ve done it on live.

I once hit 90k negative VS diving down from FL700. Citation X

I did it, and got -92000fpm and recovered, but didn’t look at the amount of G’s.
So I did again and I got roughly the same V/S and the recovery was about 30G’s.

In IF they are overspend indercators. Never knew that there were stall warnings apart from sick shake and a voice saying “stall, stall”. Guess we both learned something new lol

I was kidding ;)
