In Area, Touchdown rate..

Recommended Posts

1. How to determinate in area of wich airfield am I....or when I am landed, how to determinate on wich airfield?

I'm afraid I know of no other way but to take the Latitude and Longitude and find the nearest airport from a database. There should be an easier way, for sure, but if there is I've never found it.

2. How to determinate touchdown rate (ft/mn) just like in FsPassenger or something like that?

A value for this was added in version 3.53 of FSUIPC, as listed in the History document (and above, in the details of recent releases. Here's the relevant entry:

030C 4 Vertical speed, copy of offset 02C8 whilst airborne, not updated whilst the “on ground” flag (0366) is set. Can be used to check hardness of touchdown (but watch out for bounces which may change this). [FS2002+]

Note that this is metres per second x 256. You will need to convert it for feet per minute. (x 3.28084 x 60 / 256)
