That happens because you cut the power too early and flare too early.

You can take a 763 out there easily in the sim..Smile
Keep practising, watch your weight and winds, use every inch of the runway and let the engines spool up before releasing the brakes.

You'll get the hang of it Wink

the measurment of the RWY in TNCM is about 7000 something, the B767 needs more lenght, no doubt i cant take off. Wink and i am practicing every night, to conclude ! i chose the A330-300 Air Canada livery, easy smooth, realistic sound and panel gauges, and wing views the best model ! by project open sky. I will show the pic of this plane later.

Then your runway and my runway must be different Very Happy because I can take off there at MTOW and still have a few feet of runway left when I leave the tarmac!

Tried it last night before posting, just to be sure of it Wink
Using default scenery?

[EDIT] - Or the flight models are different. I flew the LDS 763, you?[/EDIT]

PS. 7535 ft indeed

Shocked Rolling Eyes IDK probebly the geomatries of the plane that popensky made, cuz basicaly the b767 takeoff flaps are 5 degrees, I set flpas to 10 degrees, roling at 157 kts, and pitch everything ok auto brakes RTO, and cant take off, I think its the geomatries and physics of the plane, THEY ARE WRONG ! Very Happy My A330 is much better, its the same almost heavy jet as b767 and flyes better.

You found the clue ARD-DC. The LDS with MTOW is (at least appears) still lighter than the Posky when the fuel isn't reduced prior to TO.

Tiger, the Poskys are always overweight by default, that's why you're running out of RWY.

You MUST adjust your Fuel and Payload before your flight and you'll be able to TO from TNCM in a 767 or 747.
