You've not said what aircraft you are flying because this problem might well have been sorted for your aircraft by others. But the lift_scalar entries in the flaps.0 and flaps.1 sections are usually what needs to be adjusted, but it can depend on other factors like what entries are in the air file.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

To help see the runway during landing, you can use SHIFT-ENTER (at the same time) to tilt your view down towards the runway. The space bar will reset the view to normal.My understanding is, in a real aircraft, when you flare for landing it is difficult to see the runway.

Hi,The pitch is controllable from the cockpit with the trim wheel, and so when the nose lifts up, you trim down and adjust your speed and everything else to get the plane to have the right attitude in the air. Everything must have the right attitude to get anywhere!! A bit like life itself!Andy.

I do not recommend you edit any of the performance figures in the aircraft.cfg as you're a rookie and you're likely to mess something up.As was mentioned already in this thread, SHIFT + ENTER moves the eye point up, giving you a better view in front of you. To center it again, simply press the SPACE bar. For the flair I like to have it centered so I get a good feel.It is possible you're flying at too low of an approach speed. Each aircraft has a certain speed it must be flown at in relation to the flap setting and the gross weight. Try increasing your speed a few kts and you should see a decrease in approach pitch.Of course, if you're flying a Tristar, I can't help you, as a typical approach pitch in a Tristar is 7-8 degrees due to the direct lift control. :-)
