During my time i dosens of simulators I have wasted more aircrafts due to lack of knowledge than I care to remember
So after while flying IL-2 I started out collecting and testing for flight data.
I would be really nice if this simulator would be delivered withe the following data and that the data are alligned with real world data
V'NE - Never Exceed Speed (in Any Operation) V'FE - Max. Flaps Extended V'LO - Velocity Landing gear Operating (Max Landing Gear Operating Speed) V'LE - Velocity Landing gear Extended (Max Landing Gear Extended Speed) V'R - Rotation speed (aka safe takeoff speed)
Vcorner - Corner speed V'sus: - Minimum sustained speed V'REF - Landing Reference Speed (Threshold crossing speed) V'S - Stall Speed (in which A/C is controllable) V'S0 - Stall Speed in Landing Configuration V'Y - Best Rate-of-Climb speed V'BE - Max Speed brake Extended Speed (if airbraks are present) Water Temperature min and max: Oil Temperature min and max:
Wing Span - Nice to know when you use the sight to guage distance vs convergence Lenght: xx,xx m Wing area: xx,x m2 - This give an indication of what kind of combat and handling can be expected
Service Range with normal bomb load: xxx Km
Service Ceiling: xxx m
The data below will give an indication of when an aircraft is in overload configuration.
It seems that most sim pilots are unaware that the amount of fuel are reduced when the bombload are raised to max and that it is a compromise between range and bombload. Cliffs of Dover gave us a nice indication of when an aircraft was overloaded.
Weight, Loaded: Weight, Max TO:
Normal Bombload: Max Bombload:
