Flaps for landing or takeoff?

Recommended Posts

What determines if I use flap 30 or 40 for landing? If it is in the chart how do I read it, or is it just pilot choice? Usually I use 30 for landing because it seems easier to handle. Same goes for takeoff, I usually fly flap 5. What do I do?Brad

Most common takeoff flaps on the NG will be flaps 1 followed by 5 (Like at KSNA for noise abatement). For shorter runways/contaminated etc you will want to go flaps 5 and in extreme cases flaps 10 Flaps 30 pretty much is what I see, you can use others and must in certain cases but that is where SOPs or pilot judgment come into play ;) [h4]Best Wishes,Randy J.
