URGENT, NEED HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi.Most of the time I fly the Boeings and I love them! I can land them but the only problem is Aligning The Aircraft so it's front wheel land on the runway's center line.I was wondering if someone could give me a detailed explanation on how to do that(no ATC stuff or ILS)I want to do that Visually.Thanks a lot!Silly."I wonder why Kamikaze pilots wore helmets" ;)

Silly --Best advice -- point the plane at the centre line. :-) There is no 'cookbook' procedure for it, you just do it.Good luck!

With your aircraft on the runway, go to spot plane view and taxi or slew to align your aircraft's nosewheel and fuselage with the runway centerline. Once you have the alignment correct, switch to cockpit view and note the point where the runway centerline intersects with the instrument panel glareshield. On the default 737-400 a small notch will be visible at this point and you can use this notch as a reference mark to help align the aircraft with the centerline during final approach. You should also note the position on the virtual cockpit glareshield as centerline alignment seems more difficult when flying in virtual cockpit mode (at least for me). Real world 737 drivers use the control column as a centerline reference on final approach, and their right leg as a reference during taxi to help align the aircraft and stay out of the weeds, so you are in good company here.
