Question with Flex temps

Recommended Posts

Hi thereI was wondering if by any chance you know the formula, used in real life to calculate according to te tempeture, rwy lenght, field alttitude , etc, for getting the correct tempeture to be entered in the perf page. I read in a post that by error, we are supposed to insert the temperatures with a - (-42) for it to have effect, but i still don't know where to get the tempeture....thankshappy holidays

The formula is complex and there is a very big Airbus document called "Getting to Grips with Cost Index" which discusses it (see http://www.wingfiles.com/ for a copy).For the MCDU the thrust you should get at different minus Flex TO Temps is shown below. Make sure you never choose a temperature which is less than 75% of TOGA thrust.FLEX N1%-10 96.1-11 96.0-12 95.8-13 95.6-14 95.5-15 95.3-16 95.2-17 95.0-18 94.9-19 94.7-20 94.5-21 94.4-22 94.2-23 94.1-24 93.9-25 93.8-26 93.6-27 93.5-28 93.3-29 93.1-30 93.0-31 92.8-32 92.7-33 92.5-34 92.4-35 92.2-36 92.1-37 91.9-38 91.7-39 91.6-40 91.4-41 91.3-42 91.1-43 91.0-44 90.8-45 90.7-46 90.5-47 90.3-48 90.2-49 90.0-50 89.9-51 89.7-52 89.6-53 89.4-54 89.3-55 89.1-56 88.9-57 88.8-58 88.6-59 88.5-60 88.3Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
