In a 767 climbing to fl320.......on reaching fl200 my plane suddenly looses control and stalls?????
any help appreciated.
just killed 300 ppl

One would need a little more information than what you have listed....what are your system specs, have you installed any 3rd party software, does this happen with any other plane?
I haven't heard of this problem before...Hope I can help...
also are you using autopilot when it happens or hand flying it??
:):):) ****What goes up must come down, no matter how hard or soft.........Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing..... :):):)

Check your realism settings and see if you have indicated airspeed (IAS) and not true airspeed (TAS) selected. You may think you are above stall speed when in reality you are not. Also try reducing your vertical speed to 1000-1500 fpm after FL180.
Get back with us if you are still having problems.

LAST EDITED ON May-02-02 AT 08:40PM (EDT)[p]This is a very interesting question.Although I dont have any major problems climbing I always wondered how real airliners climb.Depending on the fuel load passenger load and other weights that need to be taken into consideration,what is the standard climb rate that airliners use to climb to their altitude.
Sometimes when I am flying into the wind I have to slow my climb to almost 200-300fpm just to keep the plane from getting into a stall position.I also hate leveling off at my FL with a nose-up attitude.

Flying into the wind will help with lift, not cause a premature stall. Did you mean flying with a tail wind ?

Roger sir tail wind.

I figured that's what you meant :)

I'm using posky767, have had this problem with an a320 aswell.
Default aircraft are fine as is DF737-400
I'm on autopilot and at about fl200 it starts to struggle to get any higher, pitch of aircraft goes way up and speed drops to stall.
Could it be an error in cfg file?
System specs are
geforce2mx ( will be geforce4 Ti4400 by the time i see a reply )

LAST EDITED ON May-03-02 AT 01:15PM (EDT)[p]First, the POSKY 767 aircraft have been recognised as being very finicky to climb to cruise altitude. The developers say that "it is the way the real thing is, and you should learn how to fly properly". Go over to their forum and you will see lots of flak flying around about this (excuse the bad pun ;-) ). Anyway, progressively reduce climb rate as you ascend to maintain air speed. I find that if I am going over about FL300 with any kind of load I will be down to 500 f.p.m. or even less. Great looking planes, though.
Secondly, once you are in the air, the wind speed and direction will have no effect on your stall speed or indicated air speed (barring sudden shifts or gusts). The wind will only affect your ground speed.
Thirdly, Jared, most modern jetliners cruise with nose-up pitch (a few degrees, depending on weight, etc.)

I managed to recover the plane at 3800 feet and climbed again and after that it behaved itself. I set the VS to just a few hundred feet/minute then left and me and the wife went out for several hours. When I returned everything was working smoothly.
After leaving Ataturk and heading for the Mount Ararat Anomaly,
I headed north to Belorus and turned and headed for EGCC.
Nice landing, came to a stop about a mile past the end of the runway. Didn't F2 ! did I?

It's not your fault on the 767. The flight dynamics for the POSKY 767-300 has problems. Hopefully, they'll fix it soon. It's a shame not to be able to fly such a well designed aircraft.
I have never flown the A320 so i couldn't comment on that. Try the A330. Its the best of the lot.

cheers for that and to everyone else
i'll live with it or without it !

You most likely left the autothrottle engaged. Remember - it is not coupled to the autopilot. It needs to be turned of manually.

The POSKY forum is closed for some reason that I don't know of :-hmmm
Yes, their flight dynamics are not accurate despite the fact that they say that it is what the real-world 767 is like. But if you have some patience and decrease your vertical speed as you climb, you can climb up to even 41,000 feet, though it takes about double the time as it does in real life... I still like their 767, but their A330 is better in my opinion.

The way i came over this problem?
Change the "static_thrust" in your aircraft.cfg file, from the low 60,xxx value to 73,000
THis will enable very nice thrust power (actually it's the ground intake) and you'll fly like a bird!
