I have written to the developer with the following communication:



My name is *Robert Cezar*, developer of It's *Your Plane (IYP)*


We have a number of pilots using your application. There seems to be a BIG
difference between your data and our data.

How are you calculating *Vertical Speed *at touch down?

We flew a *Boeing 738*, and landed at *CYXX*, ILS *Runway 7*.

Your report shows a Vertical Speed of *444 ft/min*

We use *FSUIPC *Offset *030C*, and we get *41 ft/min*

I was wondering if you have an explanation for the BIG difference.

Thanks a lot,



I will let you know if/when I receive a response.

Thank you.
