I made a mistake, what I can do?

Postby Bulldog 1 » Thu Aug 31, 2017 12:32 pm

I landed with a 757 in the airport of El Hierro (GCHI). And When i saw the airport, I expected it was bigger, I landed with full brakes and reversers and spoilers, But, I want to do it realistic.

If that plane land there, What would you do in real life? How a big plane can take off from there?

It's a question that i make to myself everytime.


Thank you

In real life You can't land with big plane on small airport, because airlines know airport limitations.

Try to take it out of there. With no payload, as little fuel as possible to get to GCXO, full flaps? (I don't really know about this), spool 100% the engines before releasing brakes. Wait until METAR reports a big headwind and try to pull it

IIRC, there is a big cliff at one end of El Hierro, make sure to bring a float with you, just in case.
