Nose-high attitude during approach and landing

Recommended Posts

There is one point I would like to mention about the PA32's flight dynamics: It generally feels very believable (including stalls and sideslip), except the somewhat exaggerated nose-high attitude during final approach and flare. Based on my RW flying with Cherokees and Archers and watching some Saratoga landing videos I tried a slight correction with a simple aircraft.cfg mod:

pitch_scalar = 1.9    // original seting: 1.0

This leads to a more expectable landing attitude and to an even greater landing experience with this attractive GA aircraft.
