How do you know the Pitch angle on the PFD

Recommended Posts

Hi i have always wanted to ask this question about pitch angle. Many times when i try performing a good flare upon landing i have herd everyone talk about pitch degree angle. I have yet to know where 2.5 degree is on the PFD. Does anyone have some sort of diagram that labels out all the pitch angle on the PFD? I don't know if this is the correct place to ask about this simple information but feel free to move this thread to the correct place if you like.

That would depend on the specific PFD you're asking about. They are not all marked the same.

Well in this case it would be the A320 PFD

The first line is 10 degrees, and then 15 degrees. More than looking at the PFD, look at the runway scanning from near to the far end, and raise the nose so that you are almost level at touchdown. Start pulling the nose up  at about 50-60  feet AGL.  Takes practice.

Thanks for the explanation . What about those lines below 10 degrees, those lines that are not label on the PFD?

Depending on how many there are... it is either 2.5, 5, 7.5 or simply 5 if only one.

Thanks guys just like it said in the Aerosoft A320 Manual each line is 2.5 .

Also, don't look at the instruments in the flare.  Look out at the runway.  When you're flying visually, FLY VISUALLY.

I tend to pay attention to the vertical speed. It should be low no matter what  :Tounge:

Never mind the PFD - just count the worry lines on the forehead of the PM.....  and anywhere between a tail-strike and/or crumpling the nose wheel usually counts as a successful landing.   hehehehe  :LMAO:

What was strange is yesterday i perform a very good crosswind landing. Now if you ask me to do it again i would be like :Thinking:

Maybe that means you are doing it naturally without having to think through every step. You are staying ahead of the a/c.

I guess so the reason i ask because i felt lost when Airbus pilots or fellow simmers talk about pitch degree angle. I never knew where  2.5 degree is on the PFD

Yea i can notice that after watching some real crosswind landing on youtube.
