Anson Cadogan EA Michael, Please submit a comment to account for the hard landing. Thanks.
Michael Verburgt Hello and thought I had! My mistake! But anyhow, learning to fly a new aircraft, the md80, freeware no less.. has only half the working gauges a full-paid payware does. Wasnt quite sure yet how to do an ILS landing with it yet, so I shut the autopilot off at 1000' and tried to hand-fly it the rest of the way. Practice makes perfect, eh?? Tried lookin for youtube tutorials on the md80, but the landing ones are hard to come by, so just gonna keep trying till I get it right......
Cody Richter EGLL HM New planes are always hard. keep trying and make sure you find the vertical speed indicator on it.
