A330/340 A floor!

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I was @ 39k climbing to 41k for my flight from EGLL to VHHH in the 340-300 when for no apparent reason my airspeed started dropping off quickly. The auto throttles responded and A floor Togo link start flashing wildly! But the airspeed continued to slow down and after what seem like an eternity the stall warning came on! I was quickly loosing altitude. I tried to disengaged the AT first to correct the problem to no avail. Then i took out the autopilot! And nosed down to pick up the airspeed! Still no joy finally my bird met with the ground and all was lost!!! I was some 3 hours into this flight on the last section of my stepped climb. All the gadgets were programmed and working normally upto this point!I am using the new FDE and i haven't added anything to the package after the new files were added. Before then the flight was progressing normally!Any direction would be greatCheersDal

Hi Dal,Hmmm, maybe you have encountered one of FS'... creative ways to handle weather at large. I think a registered version of FSUIPC can handle that.Also be sure to check your MCDU's readout with respect to OPT ALT and MAX ALT.

I fly the YSSY-YMML-YSSY routing at least a couple of times a week in the A340 with no issues.Are you flying this online? If not could you? We could talk it through real time.
