I am about to attempt Nairobi to New York, a wonderful ultra long haul route of around 17 hours, from the city I currently live in.
As the 787 is a relatively new aircraft, I am failing to find information pertaining to the following queries:
- At what speeds should flaps be retracted on takeoff? The clean speeds?
- At what speeds should flaps be extended when on an approach, I have been completely unable to find this.
- I have found a very helpful post on takeoff thrust on this forum, where i found i should be using around 80% thrust on takeoff, but what should my climb thrust be?
- What altitudes should I be at as I progress through my flight? I will obviously be very heavy at the beginning of my journey, so i am unsure of what altitude is should climb to and when.
Thank you for any answers that may be given!
