The famous flare cushion?
Comparing a Level-D A340 flight simulator to the PSS A340, I witness similar effect on flaring, so I guess the PSS add-on does it.
Altough the Level-D is much more sensitive in the way it will get you longer to drop altitude, but again the difference is not much.(much more is the initial climb-out, the PSS climbs like a rocket!)
I haven't done many landings in the original jets of FS9, but I do remember they are always harder!
So I guess some add-on's and aircraft simulate this effect.
It is I who did get things confused and wrote a totally stupid post....
Sorry...but I was somewhat "lost" and therefor "created" a ground effect that will suck your aircraft into the ground....

Bully707: sorry about that! (Note to self - read the entire post before responding!)
What happened was that I posted in response to Bully707's post about the "sucking" ground effect and thought I was being smart by correcting him. After I'd posted I noticed the rest of his post where he said he wasn't being serious. I had to edit the post to add the apology!
