    Don't sink....

    Hi

    On landing in fsx I get the "don't sink" warning on approach. Is there a way to rectify this?

    Yupe more speed and 700 ft a min Rate of descent might help during landing ! Go above 1200 feet a min below 1000 Feet and you wil get Don't sink!

    Regards,

    Thanks Roberto

    I get this during auto land. My speed is about 150 (in the 737) flaps 30/40. My CDU tells me to go even slower but this seems incorrect.

    150 knots seems a little fast (obviously depends on a number of factors) but my average landing speed is about 135-140knots.

    P.S. I sometimes get "Don't sink" - even when everything is perfect.

    I agree too 150 KTS seems very fast try it with what your CDU says! THe thing is that to keep a faster speed he might throw the sink rate a bit so you get don't sink!
