Planes Drifting during landing and takeoff


Recommended Posts

I've noticed it on a few of the runway choices where planes on the runway when landing will land off the center of the runway and drift towards the center, and when taking off start in the center and drift to the left or right (off the runway in some cases). Has anyone else had this problem?


Any advice or solutions would be helpful.


Thank you

I get this at JFK and San Diago.... don't play the others so much so haven't noticed it there.


I figured it was the inbound airways not being completely lined up with the runways but have not yet altered anything to see.

I've played with the airfields in editor to see if moving the approach and runway line up to the left of right accordingly (to however the plane was drifting); had a little luck with arriving planes, when they land it looks lined up but about 1/4 way down the runway the drift starts happening.
