Are you setting proper flap's before take off?

um lol which would be?

could u plz give me a list of all the things do do for a perfect take-off

Well if you don't know what flap's are you should surely go through all the flight lessons that are included within the game, thats why they are there. Trust me once you know everything there is to know you'll have a lot more fun with the simulation and play it for quite a long time.

Check out the Learning Center within Flight Simulator. I suggest starting with the Cessna 172 and work your way up to the Boeing's.

Flight simulator can be very technical. It's not a game, at least not in the usual sense. There are no levels, scores, guns, missions, ranks, goals or progression of any kind. The program simulates civil flying to a point that some study is required. The Learning Center and Lessons are provided in the program to help you learn. 🙂

You'll find the above advice the most useful 😉

For heavy jets, you are looking to rotate between 160 and 180 KIAS depending on the aircraft, weight, weather conditions etc. To be more specific, have a look at the checklists at this site. It has speeds for take off and approach that you may find useful, but it is no substitute for the Learning Centre material 😉

or if you still can't get off the ground you can just put on full flaps, parking brakes, full throttle and the max wind speed blowing towards you and all you have to do to take off is just release the parking brake and u are hovering in mid-air.

Why not lighten your fuel 50% and passenger load 100%, you should lift then.

For these heavys you should definitly lighten your load as radarman said, and keep in mind most of these planes have a max-takeoff-weight. For the 777, flaps should be at 15 for ideal takeoff, and 10 on the 747.

Don't forget too that these are heavy aircraft, and won't lift off on short fields like most aircraft will. You're really going to be looking for runways of length greater than 10,000ft to get off the ground comfortably. You can check a runway's length using the map in game, and clicking on the airport. All of the information regarding runways is listed there.

If he doesn't know what flaps are everything you guys are telling him to do is going to be over his head.

As CRJ said start out in the learning center with the Cessna, then work your way up.

You need DXTBmp available here ➡ https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/2883/dxtbmp-dxt-extended-bitmap-editor/

You need a graphics editor, a good fully working trial version is available here ➡ http://www.corel.com/corel/product/index.jsp?pid=prod4900067&cid=catalog20038&segid=8100002

Good luck!
