FS9: Landing with autothrust

Recommended Posts

Can someone please confirm that this is correct: Scenario:

  • Established final
  • VFR,
  • A/T (autothrust) engaged, eg. 165kts IAS,
  • FD (flight director) engaged - AP autopilot
  • at 3000 ft - autopilot disengaged - A/T still engaged
  • GEAR DOWN
  • FLAPS SET
  • SPOILERS ARMED
  • AUTOBRAKES 2

and at touchdown the spoilers will not deploy, engines wil NOT go to IDLE of itself but remain the speed (165kts) and NO autobrakes.(SET 2) Remark: this is NOT an AUTOLAND but a regular VFR land. When performing an AUTOLAND,: - the engines goes to IDLE 50ft above, SPOILERS DEPLOY and AUTOBRAKES set in. This happens to me. Roar K

Spoilers and autobrake should get armed long before final. Autopilot disengage at 500 feet if manually landing, or around 50 feet if its an ILS landing. Autothrottle gets disconnected around the same times too. The throttles will only idle by themselves if flying a full LAND 3 autoland

Forget the checklist. of course the spoilers and autobrake is armed long before final. This is only the scenario I fly - and I follow the 747 cecklist.This is not an ILS landing.I disengage the autopilot to manually fly and land the aircraft. You say that I also should manually disengage the autothrottles as well? do I understand you correct? Roar K

Yes. Correct. The only way a autothrottle on landing works is when using autoland, otherwise the throttles won't go to idle upon touchdown
