Captain,Isn't there TOGW - FLAPS setting table?Sincerely,Kan-ichiro Fushihara
No, that is not available, since the MD-11 uses "dial a flap" feature- so you will not have a fixed flap value for a certain weight- the flap setting changes with the conditions to get the optimum performance.RGDS

I would, too. But I don't think that information has been made available - possibly because Boeing hasn't released it to the general public? The same applies to procedures for selecting assumed temperatures.Tom

There are a couple of long threads on this topic already. Apparently, most operators have settings for all cases and some have a couple of settings. A search will reveal the extensive discussions.
