Takeoff thrust issue

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am having a problem with the auto throttles on take off particularly with a FLEX setting. I am not quite sure how to set the flex temp, but I read a post where 50 is a common setting. Once lined up, I push the autoflight button to arm the throttles. Flex 50 is indicating a 1.44 EPR for take off. After advancing the throttles, I hear the 'click' and the autothrottles kick in. However, after the 'takeoff thrust set' is announced my power drops to about 1.23 EPR. Again I don't know if this is because of the Flex setting I have or not, or if this is normal. This has happened everytime I take off regardless of weight. Any help would be appreciated Thanks, Dave S

Make sure that your levers are set fully forward, or select the appropriate option in the PMDG menu.
Thank you very much, that worked. I was always advancing the levers forward until I heard the click and then stopped instead of going all the way forward.DaveS
