please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

i have downloaded every single concorde available for fs2002 and i have tried to replace aircraft cfg files and air files in order to solve the problem. i was flying from paris to jfk.everything went fine until i came for the final approach. i checked the checklist vey careful for nose, landing speed and other landing equipment. so when i neared towards the final approach i armed the autopilot approach hold. it turned correcetly but when the glide scope needle starts to go down the concorde pitches downwards but never recovers and it simply lands 1 mile before the runway. i have tried every thing but it just doesnt land on the runway.please, please help.

The most realistic airfile for Concorde can be found in concvort.zip on flightsim.com by Paul Varn.For approach and landing...The aircraft should be at 3000ft (give or take 1000ft depending on situation) at 190Kts. These are the numbers used both at NY Kennedy and London Heathrow. Join the Localiser at around 15-13nm. The glide slope should then come into place. Engage approach mode (or on Concorde, the actual MCP button states 'Land' or 'Glide'). Within a couple of hundred feet of the glide, select gear down - nose to 12.5* and select a speed of 170Kts.This will be the speed that the aircraft flies down to 15ft, so the autothrottles can be left alone from this point until they are disengaged at 40ft (using the button on the side of the throttle column). Now the aircraft should fly the approach with ease. It may take a few seconds for the aircraft to establish onto the ILS - just leave it alone and she will settle down.From 100ft the aircraft has to be in the right place, the approach is over, and there is little room for adjustment. From here, DO NOT pay anymore attention to the GS or Vasis, ignore the marks on the runway (they'll soon disappear under the nose) and also don't worry about the runway coming up at you fast, look at the end of the runway, not down at it.Hold the attitude at around 10*. Descent rate should be about 750/850fpm. Hold this now until 15ft, make sure that the descent rate doesn't change until you reach 15ft, or you'll never get it down. Also, don't aim for a spot on the runway; look ahead at the end of the runway, or beyond it, making sure that you still pay attention to everything else in your field of vision.The height calls should be about one every second, "fifty, forty, thirty, twenty", which helps keeping the decent rate at about 700fpm. Remember, at 40ft, disengage the autothrottle, and at 15ft, close the throttles. When you do this, the nose wants to drop, so apply a little backpressure on the stick, taking about 2-3 seconds to do so. The image ahead of you should not change. After the main wheels touch the ground, engage two engines into reverse (eng 2+3) and slowly push forward on the stick in order to lower the nose. At 60Kts disengage the reverses, and start to manually break theaircraft.After landing with the LFW being low - engine 2+3 are shut down so that taxing the aircraft is made considerably easier. (this feature is not yet present in any FS models, but will be in a new release of Paul V's airfile).Hope this helps a little - if you have any other queries please feel free to contact me.Andrewhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d8646f524386bc6.jpg
