On the approach , the first officer was slightly high as envisaged from from the PAPI lights being all white, and neither was he on IF since he wasn't using the ILS.

in as much as you might be right,you do sound stupid using abbreviations in a forum thats not intune with flight jargons.
FYIlights were red on white though,hence the short flare,otherwise loss of runway

JKIA approach is very uncomfortable. You have to get to ngong hills bank sharply and approach. With other world reknown airports, you're already on the approach from over 30k feet. In other words, it's a straight approach. On several occasions, the banking to JKIA approach has led to screams from women in the flights i've been on coz of the quick descent and banking

Perfecto! Real life seems so much smoother that Microsoft flight. In the sim (with simulated real weather, not fake Microsoft weather) wind changes direction drastically just after minimums spoiling a good approach and forcing use of rudder at touch down. One also has to struggle with a drifting aircraft and you can not flare much at Vapp+10knots otherwise aircraft tends to float good. Very irritating.

Air speed also does not stay true, throttles have to be actuated very so often. In real life the guys just look super relaxed even in fully manual approach. I love it.
