How do I just "push the throttles forward" for max thrust?

Recommended Posts

Hi all - may seem a silly question.In the 737 - I have disengaged the autothrottle, and have pushed the thrust levers all the way forward. But the instant I finish pushing them forward, the thrust will return to whatever the annunciated thrust mode is (e.g. CLB). What am I doing wrong?Also I don't have the joystick throttle overrides the autothrottle option on - doesn't really apply anyway as the autothrottle is off!Any suggestions?CheersRudy

FADEC limits N1 to the selected thrust mode, only way to get more power is through the THR REF page on the FMC. Under certain conditions hitting TO/GA twice will give you either full TO power or MCT, but I can't remember when that will work.-Lee Barberhttp://home.nc.rr.com/uniuniunium/dvasig.jpg
