Lower wheel friction so that hornet can also air brake


Recommended Posts

NATOPS specifically states that aerobraking in the Hornet is not recommended. When landing at an airfield the proper technique is to get the nose wheel on the ground right away, then slow with speedbrake, full aft stick deflection, and wheel brakes as needed.

Firstly, shouldnt really be doing that in hornet. You risk hitting the stabs on the deck. Secondly, this is an issue with reverse ground effect under full flaps, not a wheel friction thing. You wont see it happening under half flap

Yeah I get the part where flaring in Hornet is not recommended. But is the ground effect issue a bug that is recognized by ED?

I believe so, its the most problematic part of the reverse ground effect bug that ED have acknowledged a while ago. I'm assuming itll be fixed in the upcoming FM corrections.

Yesterday I accidentally used half flap during landing and yes, I feel the real ground effect. It feels so right. This bug annoys me more than anything else so I really hope they can fix it soon.

 

Btw what is "FM" corrections?
