Landing - roll out

Guest

Hi guys,

When I land (in a boeing 777 default on FS2004) I carry out a full ILS approach etc. and land it every time on the line but as soon as I actually touch down the aircraft will jolt off the runway and I will have to steer it back on to the runway for a full roll out.

Why does this happen and what can I do about it?

Do you have symmetric thrust on approach and landing, i.e. are the thrust levers in the same position.

It sounds like you are landing using the autopilot, i.e. have the autopilot engaged when the gear touches the runway. Am I correct?

Nope 😞

It happens also if I decide to start the flight at a gate and then taxi to the runway as soon as I line up and get clearance I give full thrust and the aircraft will start to pull away to the left or right slightly.
This doesn't happen when I start at the 'active runway'.

I always make an approach using autopilot for the altitude I don't know how to 'autoland' so can't and wouldn't use it 😞

Just happens on every landing I will touch down and then when I start to roll out it will veer off to one direction of runway.

As you touch down the rudder or an incorrectly alligned nose wheel could be making you veer off.

Check your rudder trim is centered. Make sure you disengage the entire AP system before touchdown and that all controls are centered. The only reason you'd veer dramatically is as Jamie4590 says, with an incorrectly aligned nose wheel, i.e. used when taxiing or uncentered rudder or possibly assymetric thrust.

You could take some pictures of your landing (from the cockpit) or even a video - it might make it easier for us to help you.
