View Full Version : Flight sims question

03-05-2006, 09:16 AM
First of all I appologize to all the pros out there, I'm a complete newbie to flight sim games. Regardless, I was hoping someone out there can answer my questions.

what speed typically would an aircraft land or come to the runway at when you break less then 10,000ft?

If you are on approach, and around 2,600 ft above ground and the runway is in sight, what flap would you be at before you land and do full flap and reverse thrust at landing?

Thanks so much in advance!

What ever you do.. aim the plane at a point 50m or so this side of the runway with takeoff flaps. Speed varies usually but 180-200Kph is a good bet on the more modern monoplanes. Just before hitting the ground, level out, full flaps and throttle back gently as required, while raising the nose slowly..

there you go. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
