I have the Airbus A340. I am going to go from Punta Raisi (LICJ) to Luqa (LMML). I put LICJ/LMML into the From/To thing, and put FL110 into the cruise altitude, my flight number and press ALIGN IRS. Then I press PERF, and right click on LSKL1,2 and 3. At LSKL1 it says:166 and in LSKL2 and 3 it says 173(no numbers in F=, S= and O=). Then I click F-PLAN and press LICJ>Departure>Runway 07>Insert. Then I click on LMML>Arrival>Runway 32>Insert. I taxi to the runway, take off, and put on the autopilot and when I get the approcah clearance, I click PERF, Activate approach phase>Confirm approach phase. Then I press ILS, then APPR and AP2. Then I set flaps to full. Then my speed drops to 132 kts. That is just to slow, I can make it but it's a bit to slow. Am I doing something wrong or is this how its supposed to be? Should i have less flaps? What speed should I have when I land? Someone please tell me what to do. Thanks in advanceJohn Hudson

John,Why are you not putting in any V speeds?What about BLOCK and ZFW? Are you entering these?

The manual is really your friend here Johnny.ZFW - use the load editor before you start FS. It lets you set the ZFW. If the ZFW is 172684 then enter 172.6BLOCK - the amount of fuel you have on board where for example 10534KG = 10.5V speeds can be obtained by right clicking the LSKs next to the blankk values.If you have any blank values the aircraft doesnt know and wont do what you wish.

No, I meant KG or Kilos. Remember the Airbus is French :)That said, if your local settings are for Lbs then thats fine. The same idea applies so if the fuel on board was 23,175Lbs then you would enter 23.2
