Tutorial mistake

Recommended Posts

Hi,I think there's a mistake in the tutorial KBFI-KLAX regarding the flaps retraction schedule.According to the official FCTM (Flight Crew Training Manual) from Boeing, if your T/Off flaps setting is 20 or 15, you should select Flaps 5 when passing Vref30+20 (ie 15 mark on the airspeed tape), then you select Flaps 1 when passing Vref30+40 (5 mark on the airspeed tape), and finally select Flaps UP whne passing Vref30+60 ie 1 mark on the airspeed tape.Vref30+20 is the maneuver speed for Flaps 15Vref30+40 is the maneuver speed for Flaps 5Vref30+60 is the maneuver speed for Flaps 1Vref30+80 is the maneuver speed for Flaps UPWhen flaps are retracting, the aircraft should accelerate.Rgds / Stephane LI

I didn't go by the manual on flap speeds, I went by the FMC ref speeds during retracting ;)
