    Since there's no control over AI, you must adjust your power, as well as your pitch attitude, in order to match speed with the AI aircraft. Note that your aircraft doesn't speed up or slow down...

    That's my experience in FS, also, and certainly is true in real life, though I'd say it guides you, rather than "lands" you -- if you come up short you've dropped below the glide path shown on the...

    There have been a few "force-feedback" sticks that more or less simulate those forces, though they have their problems too (at least what I've experienced -- they're nice until they lock up, and some...

    Note that, contrary to popular belief, ILS is not a landing system, but rather it is an approach system. The difference may not sound like much, but the ILS designed to take you to the missed...

    I still don't understand mach, pretty confused, but will look it up, and post new question (new thread) if needed.

    It's an easy mistake to make, and it's an unintuitive concept. There's a little...

    It's not a fixed pressure, but the shock waves that develop as you approach mach 1. When close to mach 1, some of the air flow around the aircraft actually will reach mach 1 before the aircraft...

    Actually, mach 0.88 isn't an airspeed, in the sense that this particular mach number always is the same speed through the air. It's actually a percentage of the speed of sound under the conditions...

    Aviation, in general, is slow to adopt changes, since safety is involved, and so many of these changes are also costly. Also, it is far from ALL aircraft (even IFR aircraft) that have all the latest...

    Sounds like radio towers, perhaps, with the beacons being required (real life) to keep airplanes from running into them, unless it's something odd from an add-on.

    You'd probably need to get a...

    You have to keep the airspeed up, else you'll stall and crash. Trim is part of the key here, and trimming is designed to let you keep the stick near neutral. It can be hard to push forward when...

    The only thing about ground speed to concern a pilot is related to time enroute. Indicated Airspeed is what concerns a pilot (or mach, which is AIRspeed, for some things at high altitudes). An...

    I might note something else -- on a warm day, in the real world, I'd never try a J-3 at a short field that high. Perhaps not even on a cold day. It's weak enough here in Denver at 5100-5600 feet that...

    But you don't tell us which type of speed you're reporting here -- 460 kts GS, TAS or IAS (if IAS, you're supersonic, of course), and it makes a difference. If it's GS, then you also need to mention...

    What are you using for a climb speed? In a J-3 Cub 65mph might be a little fast (you ARE using INDICATED airspeed, aren't you?) for climbing.



    I'm not sure exactly what that means -- full up or...

    Of course it's difficult to help when the post is:

    As far as the regulations go, any aircraft can fly VFR, from a Cub to a 787, except in Class A airspace or when the weather is below VFR minimums. Any restrictions on an airline would come from...

    Only the glide slope is to the side of the runway. The localizer transmitter is centered on the runway at the far end.
