Departure Flap Schedule

Recommended Posts

Guest

Howdy gentlemen...Ok, I follow my checklists, and get all ready for a flight. Throttles to 70, N1, etc... on the climbout though, I seem to get sporadic behavior of the flap retraction schedule.It seems that the first time I loaded the plane, I had little -F indicators on the climbout along the speed tape on the Pegasus indicating when to pull up the next notch of flaps. Maybe that was just me fantasizing, and I know the -F appears on descent for approach, but I'm sure I saw it on departure once at least.Are there supposed to be cues for flap retraction on the speed tape? Or do I specifically reference the speed bugs on the ASI?As I normally depart on longer runways, I'm usually doing a flaps 5 departure, so... am I right in assuming I use the 2 highest speed bugs for reference when retracting the flaps (in case the speed tape indication doesn't happen)?Silly little question I'm sure, but, I'd love to know how it's done. Thanks!

I often takeoff with 15 flaps and like you said "-F" is there to tell you when you can retract a notch. The same during landings. "-F" goes aways with more than 20 flaps. On takeoff I am not usually "clean" until at least 4000-5000 ft.Michael J.

You might try importing panel settings from one of the supplied flights (see the PIC menu). It may be you have something in your default flight or your saved flights that is interfering?Just an idea...Lee Hetherington (KBOS)
