Time-triggered thrust reduction

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I´ve just heard of the time-triggered thrust reduction from a pilot. This means that CLB N1 is not initiated by an altitude but by a certain time after takeoff has been initiated (pressing TOGA).

 

Does anybody have some information on this? I guess this isn´t modeled in the NGX.

 

Cheers,

 

Robert

There's a lot of options out there, but I don't think that's "modeled" in the real plane, either. ;)

 

There is a 5 or 10 minute limit on takeoff thrust, but that's not an issue until you're doing engine failures. After that, you set MCT manually.

I've never heard of this as a programming option, but I know you can just hit the timer on the clock at takeoff, and keep the fmc on the thrust options page, and hit the climb thrust you want at the time you need

Thanks for the answers, but he clearly mentioned that thrust reduction occurs 2:30 mins after hitting TOGA, not at a pre-selected altitude. This might be an option not modeled, though.

I hear ya. What I am saying is that he could just be using the airplanes chronometer and hitting the climb thrust himself
