For some reason the A330-200 will not lift off.
I downloaded another copy of the package and installed that but it made no difference.
I have tried it with manual flying and with the TOGA switch. Still no good.
I tried other aircraft and there is no problem so I have concluded it is this particular aircraft.
I will stop using it until further notice.

I don't know anything about an A330, but:
Make sure you have flaps & slats down and out.
Also make sure you have enough up elevator trim.

Good luck.

I agree with Jerry. If it is trimmed it will lift off by itself.

Is anyone else experiencing similar problems?

Easy take-off :
- Flaps on 2
- Speed 160 kn
- Gently pull
- As soon as airborne gears off and flaps off

It works perfectly (see picture take off from LSGG full loaded aircraft)

Thanks Yoland,
Mine drags the tail on the runway just at liftoff but does become airborne.

Make sure you reach the rotate velocity before pulling back on the yoke and then easy does it fella. Don't raise the nose over 15 degrees while the mains are on the runway.

If you have a tail strike, then with some of our aircraft there will be sparks and your tail will catch fire. You will be leaving a trail of smoke behind you as you go. That would not be good because the passengers in the terminal who saw you leave will not be wanting to fly with St. Paul Airlines again.

Robert, I did not come down in the last shower and am well acquainted with what you have written.
