IN SOME PLANES ,when landing,you cant throttle the engine back to idle,it makes landings very difficult.also the fw190s bounce too much on landing. is there any fix for this?? THANKS.

The "sticky throttle" problem seems to be a characteristic of a few planes. It's fairly easy to handle.

During the war, fighter pilots used to make a low pass over the field in the direction of landing, and break up in a modified chandelle to bleed off speed as they entered the pattern. Some guys would sideslip and do "S" patterns to slow down.

One solution that works in FB:

1) Bring the a/c down to <1000M on the back leg of the pattern, drop your flaps one step and level off. The aircraft will bleed off speed in the turn onto the base leg and onto the final leg.
2) Drop your flaps one more step as you start the final (at 6-700M), lower wheels and drop full flaps inside one km from touch down.

You should be able to reach landing speed and flare out just above the runway. If you don't flare out too high, you should avoid excessive bouncing. Good luck.

Not sure what to do about your throttle problem.. I don't think I have that issue?

As for bouncing on landing, make sure you're flaring properly over the threshold and perhaps more importantly, managing your sinkrate properly on your approach.

If you find that you're going to hit hard and recognize it, try giving the throttle a little bit of a goose before it happens.. that should flatten you out some.

Also, if you find that you're consistently coming in too steeply, try using a notch less of flaps. That will force you to take a much flatter trajectory on your approach which will make it easier to manage your sink rate.

Hope that helps?
