#1 Pitch on final way too high! von merli 15.06.2010 19:04


i fly the BA463 with Jon Murchinson's air file and the following problem occurs.

I'm on final, i set my flaps and my speeds according to the manual but when reaching Vref and flaps 33, the pitch goes up to 5-6 °.

Subsequently, the landing is very hard.

I don't know where exactly the problem is. Does anyone know how to solve this issue??

When on short final, it is customary on the 146's and ARJ's to use the Airbrake, to compensate for this, you need to use more thrust, this effectively puts the Aircraft into a nose down attitude.

Try a few practice landings at London City (EGLC), this has a 5.5° glideslope and you won't be able to land there without the Airbrake being set almost at the top of the glide !!

P.S. the Airbrake lever should be set to maximum of 80% when on approach.

100% is used ONLY on the ground to deploy the Lift Dump Spoilers, this function is manual on the 146's and should be automatic on the ARJ's.

P.P.S. if you have a look at photos of the 146's on final approach, on one of the many aviation photo sites such as

you will see that the vast majority of them have the Airbrake deployed.

Here's a link to a good one of G-JEBC landing at Manchester

you can see the Airbrake fully deployed and JEBC has a definite nose down attitude, although this is probably exagerated a little by the camera angle.

Here's another of my favourite G-JEBG landing at Gatwick
