Landing Touchdown / Speed

Guest Guest

Hello,

Is there a way to see your landing speed and touchdown fpm without FS Passengers? Sometimes I like to just mess around and now that I have FSP I'm always wondering what my exact speeds and touchdown rates are.....

Thanks!

Eric,

You can record your flight and watch it back slowly and see your descent rate and landing speed etc, or you can look at the Flight Analysis and get some information from that Wink

You can do all of this without FSPax in real time... am I wrong?

You are right.

Just do it like Chief Captain Jon suggeted. Watch the flight on Instant Replay.

I was actually thinking of yet another option, hence my "...am I wrong?"

While you're flying, landing or doing you're barrell rolls and as an accomplished pilot manage to keep an eye on your instruments, shouldn't you be able to see exactly what's going on?

I take this as a Yes then? Umm...

Sorry about the 'Quotes', I have to practice.

Thats true, but when you are landing, you only glance at instruments to make sure everything is running normally, and then when you are close to the threshold you look out for visual cues to land the aircraft - so you can't really notice too much about your exact -fpm and landing speed etc, and not everyone is an accomplished pilot, so it is good for practicing Wink

In the default MSFS 2004, there is no report of your landing speed or touchdown rate of descent. Smile

Thanks guys for the advice. I have been using instant replay to view my "approximate" landing speed and -fpm. I guess I just thought it was a nice touch that FSP tells you exactly what you were doing.

Thanks again for the replies!

Check this gauge out it will give you some data, don't know that it quite what you are looking for.

Collects and displays a number of takeoff and landing roll parameters, including ground roll, obstacle length, nominal runway length and touchdown vertical speed, all in metric or US measure. Easy to use one button ARM operation, just like in v1.0. The gauge disarms automatically on take off, and when you slow to taxi speed on landing. This is a bitmap gauge which can be installed in FS2004 (FS9) or FS2002 aircraft. (1000+ downloads of v1.0)
