FLX thrust

Recommended Posts

In the real airbus, can the pilot use the FLX thrust when he needs more power to climb to higher altitude?I found this the only way I can get the heavy A330 to climb quickly to FL400 (assuming my weight is in the accepted range). Once I get there, then I reduce the thrust back to CL.Any help here would be appreciated.Thanks,PSS1

No, flex is for takeoffs. If a pilot wishes to climb to a higher FL s/he dials this in and the computers will take care of the thrust needed to accomplish this.
