Hi guys, I was this morning on LFPO runway 26 with a very foggy weather and modérate rain and few winds (im using ASN on realistic weather mode).I was maintening 195kt and i was a little bit delayed on the approach procedure, so i intercepted the GS at 1650ft (airport is at 280ft) and i down the gear and switch to managed speed for slow down on my VREF.I was expecting to do a go around cause of my higher speed at GS interception but the plane slow down himself fine and i landed.Standard payload was used and fob at this time was 2.8 (Kilogramms measure) landed with flaps full. The question is, is this managment speed is realistic ? how can i pass from 195 to 140 with no wnds and only 1370ft (1650-280) and no speedbrake ? Does the real aircraft act like that ? i have few hours on the a320 like 50 for the moment but i find this strange.With a 737 pmdg you can't be at 195kt and slow down like that into the glide scope.So what do you think about that ? Iis any airbus pilot or more experimented simmer on the A320 can answer me ? Thanks
Hello FSLabs, I've recentely noticed when starting to taxi, that the A320 moves in a really bumpy way, just if it's encountering some holes on the taxyway or something like that. This effect disappears at around 4-5kts. If I stop taxi and start it again, I can still experience this "effect" and, as you can imagine, it's quite annoying. I've got only standard sceneries and no terrain softwares installed. Can you help me solving this problem? Thanks in advance.
Hi, I have a few questions regarding the informations that I have to put in the flight plan before sending it to VATSIM controlers. First, what is the correct equipment code for Concorde? Which line should I select in the squawkbox drop down menu? I think it's /I but not sure. What does it change exactly for the controler? For the SID and STAR, should I always explain to the controler that Concorde cannot fly as slowly as other AC and that I need higher speed restrictions or can I just ignore the speed restrictions as indicated in the charts? And by the way, what are the minimum speeds for Concorde in the SID and STAR? For the initial climb, I think it is 250kts and for the approach, it may be Vref + something, right? Same kind of question for the speed indication in the route: I understand what means C/UPGAS/M200F450F600. But in an indication like N0560F290, I don't clearly understand the number after the N. I know that it is the speed in kts but which speed? IAS, TAS, GS? And how can I know this number? For those who are passing by, I just found a website explaining in details the meanings of the figures added to a flight plan: http://www.bleedair.de/the-flight-plan-format.html
