MCP Speed

Recommended Posts

Hi,Quick question: there seems to be some misunderstanding about the speed to set in the MCP Speed window at TO. Should it be V2 or V2+15/20?David

Good question David, not so simple to answer. It depends on who you ask. Although the PSS tutorial uses V2+15, other sources say otherwise. It is common among many Boeing operators to set MCP speed to V2, suitable for engine loss. During takeoff, the pilot manually rotates to an attitude of V2+10/15/20, ignoring FD pitch command until after positive rising barometric and radar altitudes, then flying the FD, without exceeding passenger comfort attitude.>Hi,>>Quick question: there seems to be some misunderstanding about>the speed to set in the MCP Speed window at TO.

Hello Tom,manufacturer and operator flight manuals are FAA (or other authorised office) approved manuals. The procedures therein are binding, not a matter of choice but of certification and qualification.>> It is common among many Boeing>>operators to set MCP speed to V2, suitable for engine loss.>>This is the right procedure, or at least is the one officially>issued by Boeing on its 757 Operations Manual.
