I have to agree with the previous comments. I know that there is a big difference in size but they don't simulate acceleration on take off compared to the real thing inside the 'sim'.The difference is even more noticeable as compared to the LDS763 which being a larger aircraft SHOULD not be as noticeable, if you know what I mean?Dave T. .........On the lovely warm Devon Riviera and active 'FlightSim User's Group' member at http://www.flightsimgrpuk.free-online.co.uk/

>>if you know what I mean?>>No Dave, I don't quite follow you. Please elaborate.Well 'Spanair' run a A320 daily service to Lanzarote from EGTE and each time their aircraft attains enough speed to rotate two thirds from the end of the runway.The PSS A320 needs the whole length of the runway to lift, even with minimal fuel for the trip aboard.As said, not enough 'umph' in the engines.Dave T. .........On the lovely warm Devon Riviera and active 'FlightSim User's Group' member at http://www.flightsimgrpuk.free-online.co.uk/

Have you tried setting the pitch trim to -2.0UP? Before you start your takeoff roll press the End Key (it's the End key on my Microsoft keyboard anyway) several times until your pitch trim is at -2.0UP. make sure you select the F/CTRL key on the lower ECAM so that you can watch the pitch trim setting. Edit: don't forget as well that you haven't said whether Spanair (or you) are using TOGA thrust or flex, what the fuel is, what the takeoff weight is, what the winds are doing, whter the runway is cluttered, what vR speed is and so on. All these things have an effect on the amount of tarmac that will be used. If the problem is that you rotate at vR and it still takes a long time to takeoff then para 1 above might should cure the problem.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
