Delta Boeing 737-700

Post by flaviator87 » 03 Oct 2009, 21:39

Is anyone else having problems with th 737-700 on landing? I have to keep reverse thrust and brakes on to the very end of the runway to slowdown. Any tips or fixes?

How far down the runway are you when you touchdown?

And how fast are you going when you land? I believe it must be something in how you fly (whether it be landing speed or landing position) because so far no one has complained about POSKY's 737-700.

Also, what runway at what airport are you landing on? it may be runway length that is an issue.

As everyone has mentioned, we need some additional details.

What is your airspeed over the threshold?
What flap setting are you using?
What runway are landing on and what are the winds?
Where on the runway do you touchdown (approximately)?

Also, the aircraft model might help :laugh:
For all we know, you could be trying to fly the AI models.

Using the POSKY model, landing speed is 140kias and I have tried 30 and 40 degree flaps. Last runway I landed on was runway 26L at ATL, which is 10000 ft.

I don't know if this is the answer but this happened to me a few times with Posky models, until I realized that I had the auto-throttle still armed! Once I started disarming it on short finals it still holds your speed (if you don't manually mess with the throttles) but once you touch down it responds to the brakes and reverse thrust. Hope it helps.
