Planes not landing (ATC-SIM)

submitted by tsizemore to /forum/atc-sim

Have just started playing and am enjoying the game.

However I have noticed that planes often don't land even though according to their plan they are landing.

I'll have a plane lined up for the runway at 1000 feet a few miles out and instruct him to land, the plane then just flies past the airport and the plane never lands

Landing airplanes will descend and decelerate as they approach the runway. If your planes are doing both but don't land, then they are either too high or too fast when they reach the end of the runway. Try lining up farther out so you can execute the landing command earlier.

Did that help? Can you land now?
