Do you Really Need Speedbrakes VIDEO? Part 2

Recommended Posts

Could you help me to ask this Question (see this post : http://forum.avsim.net/topic/342521-brakes/page__st__50) fsxissue.jpgNever heard of this FSX issue before.On the PMDG 747x, PMDG MD11 , Iflyng , Level-D 767 .... never had this " issue" before.Would say , its a NGX issue ?!Every other plane before:Manually "disengage" the autobrake on the know released the autobrake. But not in the 737ngx. Why?!

Can I ask once you descended steeply, interecepted and then went below the VNAV path at 320knts, how did you know to wait start to recapture the path when you were ~1400ft underneath it so you could kill your speed back to 256knts whilst comfortably settling back into the correct vnav descent path. Is there a simple formula saying that, for instance, every 10 knots of speed you need to kill whilst descending and rejoining the VNAV profile you will need to start your speed intervention 250 feet below the path? Or do you just do it empirically? Btw great vids, adds another dimension to descent planning rather than just slamming on the speed brakes.

Great videos. No doubt the best ones I've seen! Request, and maybe I won't be alone here - could you do a demo of noise abatement procedures during takeoff? Just to explain how it is carried out in real world, I am a bit confused how to properly program this in FMC. Thanks!

Thank you for hijacking this thread with a suppot issue.

Dear Jack,Thank you very much, that was to me the flight lesson of 2011 no doubt, I had such annoying problem trying to slow the plane down, I used to do things that I knew deep inside that it wast right, like using the air breaks starting FL200 and using flaps at a higher speed than indicated and deploying gear at high altitudes and speeds, I knew it wasn't right because on a real plane it wasn't happening, I followed your instructions in a small flight and it worked like magic, speed was no concern for the first time, I was busy rather than bored through out the descend phase, it felt so different and real, so thank you so much for those wonderful videos.Simple question; is there an altitude limitations for those procedures ?Best regards

No, i just use past experience on the airplane. After a while you know where to ballpark it. But sometimes the first try might not work so I might have to reopen the SPD INTV window and try again but usually it works our.

Nope, no altitude restrictions for going fast in normal operations EXCEPT ones imposed by ATC or chart depicted restrictions.

We dont use vnav below 3000 feet at our company so up to 3000 feet we use LVL CHG. On the other video I demonstrated a NADP 2. Is a NADP 1 what you are wondering about?

Because the NGX is the first addon to fully model modulated autobrakes that work like the real thing does - that's why. I'm not going to go into the technical reasons, but this will not be changing - you need to double tap the brake key/switch or press and hold it to disengage.

I noted this but in my mind it was a problem here.............. Thanks Ryan!!

There is no magic formula but it has to be noted that in general airplanes with highly efficient wings (such as the 737, A320, A330, actually all thin airfoiled wings) don't like to 'descend + decelerate', it's either 'descend' or 'decelerate' but never really combined. I used to fly an airplane which was able to do both but then again the name 'brick with wings' was a used nickname for it... ;) This entire debate is about 'energy management' btw. you need to consider your potential and kinetic energy level, being altitude(potential) and speed (kinetic) and combined they give you your 'energy level'... the trick is playing around with that... trading speed for altitude or opposite ...f.e. when hitting a turbulent layer of air... often we are climbing at an ECON speed around 310kias... but it never hurts to 'zoom up' through the turbulent layer by trading in your kinetic energy (310kias) for potential energy (higher altitude) (respecting minimum speeds of course, it should be noted that climbing at green dot speed gives you the best rate of climb but it will not be the most economical way of climbing as you will need a lot of time and power to regain your 'optimum cruise speed' after leveling off... so really it's a mix of a lot of factors but as Jack says, experience will bring most of the answers... try it out, if you miss it... so be it you learn from it. cheerz

Tried it today, delayed the start of descent. Man, you make it look easy! I ended up high and fast lol. But I can see what the problem was, I didn't let the airspeed conservation, or whatever is the name, do it's stuff. So after the TOD, I had the airplane mantain it's cruise speed, when I started the descent I had too much energy to bleed, both high and fast, not a good combination.

The NGX flies that close to the real thing.. IMPRESSIVE.. BTW nice flying and nice videos. Wish I could handle the plane like that

Thanks for making these videos! Before I would always use FL Change mode to descend (by dialing in a low speed and letting the plane sink past the descent path), which happens sometimes, but it's still unrealistic to use it all the time.

Yes, is NADP 1 always used with VNAV engaged? I do not understand under which circumstances NADAP 1 is used. Does NADP 1 involve throttle reduction at around 1000 ft and delaying flap retraction until 3000 ft? In this case acceleration altitude=thrust restoration altitude, or I am wrong?
