Achivements: max. distance with no engine thrust


I tried to achive this but regardless of whether I sailed the Icon A5 or the citation longitude with the engines stopped, I always get 0.00. Does anyone know the trick?

There is a magic formula for calculating gliding distance.

Available glide equals 0.5 of the distance to the nearest runway.

Did you just reduce thrust to idle or did you actually turn off the engines?

Fly the minimum drag speed for the correct weight? Seems like a simple achievement to get when using the correct speeds. Weight has no influence on glide range by the way, a light aircraft travels just as far as a fully loaded one given the correct speed is flown, heavy = higher glide speed and therefore shorter glide time but same glide range when compared to a light aircraft.

I shut the engines off in both aircraft. In the Icon I glide for about 30 minutes from 19.000 ft. With Icon I also landed on water so it was not crashed. With the Longitude I miss the targeted airport by 5 miles and sunk the plane in the pacific :roll_eyes:

But both times no record in the profile.

Acheivements are pretty bugged IMHO. I got most of the ones I’ve attained without even doing what was intended to get them. And I didn’t get others that I tried very hard to do.

My latest was SIDs and STARs on Saturday. Supposed to get that landing at X number (can’t remember the exact number offhand) of starred airports on the map. I got mine while flying at 7000 over the Everglades from KAPF to KOPF - neither being a starred airport.

I also got the one for landing on a grass runway (can’t remember the title offhand) while at flight levels in the Longitude over the Indian Ocean. At that point, I had NEVER landed on a grass strip.


Yeah, that sounds like a solution. Didn’t you happen to write down the point above the Indian Ocean? :rofl:

i’ve got achievements unlocked/opened have tried them or not and using ms store version which is xbox related, at least achievements are from xbox thingy

I didn’t. This was months ago now. I just remember I found it quite funny to get that achievement at that time when I wasn’t even close to being in a situation where this could have been possibly granted.

Is’nt this game about getting achievements? I cant sleep still having one of this at 0.00! Why that ocean must be that big?

I need coffee, much coffee … :crazy_face:
