Landing question...

Recommended Posts

Curious, what determines whether or not I use flap 30 or 40 on takeoff and how do I decide what autobreak setting to use??Brad Zimmer

Flaps 30 or 40 on take off - I've never used anything greater than flaps 10. Does the original poster mean landing particularly in view of his secondary question regarding autobrake requirements?Andy B

Hehehe, YES I thought he meant LANDING ugh. For takeoff Flaps 1 is pretty standard as well as flaps 5 in the USA. You want to use more flaps depending on the runway conditions, runway length etc. Most runways flaps 1 will do just fine but at places like KSNA a flaps 5 TO is required for a Noise abatement TO..

I actually did mean landing, not take off. I never knew what to put (30 or 40) on landing or the Autobrakes for landing.
