Someone didn't QC the landing tutorial.

Recommended Posts

Just for fun I've been going through the lessons. So far mostly OK, but the landing one... It starts you out *way* above glideslope and tells you you're on glideslope. Doesn't tell you anything about PAPI lights, which would be useful to the new pilot who could notice the 4 whites and realize they needed to descend. Then when you get on glideslope it tells you you're over the threshold about 5 seconds before you get to the threshold. And when you ignore the instruction to reduce power until you're actually over the threshold, it fusses at you that you're too high. 

Just for fun I restarted and came in below glideslope (3 red) and it still told me I was too high.  Lotta work to be done there.

Yeah, I had to forward slip the heck out of that 152 just to get it on glide slope. They have you set up for failure on that one for sure, but I found the others to be quite good.
