1. way too high idle N1 in flight. E.g. at low altitude and at 220kts N1 should be around 23%
Once the flaps are out of 0, idle N1 increases (due to the IRL horrible slow acceleration out of idle) to approx 31%
With flaps up on the Aerofly A320 idle RPM at 250kias is 39%
2. engine acceleration way too fast
IRL the CFM56 is very slow to accelerate out idle. Even at the 30% approach idle it needs almost the full 8sec.
But this is not uniform at all. It takes 5sec to achieve any noticeble but still very low thrust. Once it's above 60-70% is accelerates and decelerates very fast.
On the Aerofly it's reversed. Good acceleration at low RPM and the higher the RPM gets the more the acceleration slows down.
3. basic drag too high. But even at this high idle N1 in clean config the ROD at green dot is noticable higher than it is IRL (should be 1200-1300ft/min)
4. flap drag too high. Until conf 3 everything is still in acceptable range but in config full with gear down at idle at 150kias the ROD should be 1500ft/min and 1° nose down attitude while the Aerofly drops like a stone with -8° and 2400ft/min.
ROD and pitch attitude at conf 3 would be close to the real A320 at conf full.
Despite this (and when using conf 3 for approach) the A320 is very nice to fly and e.g. climb performance is spot on at MCT and CLB thrust.
