Using AP on takeoff

Hi All,

I have just downloaded the avsim, Easyjet A319 airbus which I am looking forward to flying. I want to take off using AP, but everytime I apply the throttle, the plane takes off at 40% and stalls, and there is nothing I can do to stop it.

Can anyone please give me any pointers on taking off using AP? The 747 takes off perfectly, but the smaller planes don't seam to.

I am using the following settings:

Heading - Runway
Alt - 9000
V/S - 1800 (I have also tried 100 though, no difference)
IAS - 240
Y/D - On
B/C - Off
Auto Throttle - On
Flaps - 15
Weight - 50% fuel

Is there anything that stands out at being wrong?

try less flaps and takeoff manually?

I do normally try to take off manually, but I would like to try an auto takeoff.

No airplane takesoff with the autopilot. It may work in Flight sim but all aircraft takeoff manually. Flight director and even auto throttles, yes but no AP. 😳

Ok, thanks for the information.

Can anyone give me any pointers on how to perform a take off in my A319? I am finding that my rotations are quite jerky.

Sounds like your not getting Full Takeoff power. Try turning off the auto throttles (AT) and setting T/O power manually. Everything else in your setup looks good. When you use AT, you have to hit the TOGA switch for T/O. On some aircraft in flight sim, this does not work properlly.
