Wilco Embraer 190 - Take off problem from Glasgow Int.

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am kinda desperate, because I managed to read through a PDF manual also I watched a few tutorial vids for wilco embraer 190 but I cant take off properly with this plane from Glasgow Int. Properly means that I can take off but it means that it take me nearly whole lenght of the runway and I can manage to pull nearly at the end of the runway, which I find very strange because I experienced a real flight from Glasgow (EGPF) to Southampton with Flybe Embraer 190 and I would say that a plane took off like in the middle of the runway.
My take off "set-up" flaps(2), nose pitch 4.9 up, throttle TO/GA..
So if anyone has any ideas what kind of mistake have I done or if anyone has any tips I would appreciate that
Thx

Hi

 

Runway 05/23 is just over 8700 feet.

Have you overloaded the EMB190 with passengers/cargo/fuel? 

Were you taking off with a tail wind?

What power was shown on instruments during take off.

TOGA shown on PFD?

Controls spiking/not calibrated correctly?

 

Cheers

When you check/test TO config are you getting the "Takeoff ok" voice?

Load: 41% passengers;  14% cargo

Take off was attempted during "fairy weather" so no wind was blowing

Power on instrument was 87,4 and I was not able to get it higher either with joy or keyboard

I just managed to calibrate a joy just before the flight

I set the TO/GA using key combination which is mentioned in key assigments settings..

I really don't know that kind of problem it is ... but thx anyway :)

Yes actually

My experience with the Feelthere Embraer Ejet's is that it is important to set elevator TRIM HIGH (over 5) to be able to rotate conveniently. I set it always to  5.3 (!)

You didn't mention anything about your fuel load..

Ok that's true but actually even with the MTOW(maximum take off weight ) plane should be capable to take off on 2056 m and glasgow runway is 8700ft which is like 2500m...

ZFW and fuel load properly entered into the FMC?

 

Did you pay attention to the units (kg / lbs)?

Actually I did not entered weight iformation into the FMC... so I'll try
