A320neo v.2 - pitch attitude during cruise


FordPrefect

Recommended Posts

I am on my second flight with this beauty now and I wonder if it is normal to have a 5 degree nose pitch up attitude during cruise (currently FL380, Mach .76).

Seems to be too high, I would expect something like 2.5 degrees nose pitch up attitude.

Is this an error of the flight model or is this correct? Just wondering...

Thanks for any pointers. I pretty much enjoy flying with your 320Neo version 2!

Just as a reference, here is a screenshot from the flightdeck on an A320neo during cruise. It appears to be flying faster (Mach .78 versus Mach .76) nevertheless the difference in the pitch up angle is evident. In the real-world screenshot the pitch up attitude looks like close to 2.5 degrees nose-up attitude.

I also had the same toughts about the pitch attitude in cruise. I realised that it maybe had something to do with the speeds and went from mach .76 to .78 and the nose lowered a little, coming very close to the irl photo you sent above. I’m planning to do some flights today and will try to post the image here so we can compare.
