Hi,

Do we need to Arm the speed brakes on approach? I think i remember reading somewhere that they armed automatically but also read they could be armed manually.

Thanks

Sorry if this has been answered before (long thread anyways), but this is the answer:

When setting FLAPS 3 for landing (about 1500-2000 ft AGL), also SPEED MANAGED setting and SPOILERS ARMED go together.

In a perfect world, the ground spoilers would come up as soon as the main gear touches the ground, since this would "pin" the aircraft to the ground and prevent ballooning.


Actually A320-family ground spoilers are the best I have ever flown... that makes grease-landig these beasts quite easy... is very very common to get imperceptible touch downs with those aircraft, when on the right hands.

I just wish all other thing on the aircraft would be as good also... (in a perfect-not world)

I know this thread has been dead for a while. But i just read something that answers this comment in an airbus manual:


"Note: - In autoland, the ground spoilers fully extend at half speed one second after both main landing gears touch down"

That might explain the late looking/slow rising spoilers in some videos and not others.


On another note, Will the speed brake be realistic in their angle of extension during flight, i.e. difference between extension angles between flying manual and autopilot?

i.e. 40 degrees for 3+4 and 20 degrees for spoler 2 during manual flight

and 25 degrees for 3+4 / 12.5 for spoilers 2

Also, will the speed brake simulate high speed retraction with auto pilot on? i.e. retraction from full takes 25 seconds.

Just interested, would be very surpised if any of that is simulated to be honest :P

Greased landings are not airline SOPs...in fact they are discouraged.  Especially on wet/contaminated runways.
