VCP deployed flaps in cruise...this damaged the aircraft so that flaps would not extend for landing...another wasted flight... :evil:

Well this can only happen if you let your speed fall, which it appears you did! :o

Why was it a wasted flight, if this happened in real life would a pilot just simply hit the "Off" button to abandon flight...no he/she would nurture the aircraft down with a bit of forward planning...why not try that in future.

yes i could have turned it into a failure procedure simulation...but the FO is never going to deploy flaps in cruise by mistake...so it wasnt even a realistic failure scenario...but more important...I cant have this happen ...i cant fly again until i know this wont re-occur...

can you tell me more about the speed fall?...how can i go from 500mph to 160 while in cruise with the throttles set?...also...isnt there a limit for flaps deployment over 12000ft? i was at the yoke and didnt see the speed fall...which had to have been tremendous to go from cruise speed to flaps1 speed in an instant

thanks for taking a look...
