B787-8-9-X takeoff suggestions

Hello, I need suggestions for the B787 takeoff requirements. I recently flew the B789 and noticed that it will rotate very quickly during full thrust on takeoff; How do I prevent that if anyone knows?

If anyone has any other suggestions feel free to type them in the comments :)

Keep some some downward nose pressure. So basically tilt your device forward and then slowly backward when you reach vrotate

You never use full thrust, which is 117% in IF. Takeoff thrust is usually between 90-100% N1 depending on the weight load.

Okay, thanks I appreciate it

I do that and it still lifts up and does a tailstrike somehow

The 787 has a shallow takeoff angle compared to other aircraft being an aircraft that sits quite low to the ground. A 787 will have an initial takeoff angle of 10’ max. Only once its cleared the ground will it pitch up further.

Not doing full thrust :) 86% should do

Push forward on the device until rotation speed. Rotate to 7 degrees, when the wheels come off the ground increase rotation. Try flaps 15.

For the 787-8 and -9, weight depending and runway length, etc. I’ll use Flaps 5 for most of my departures. Throttle position of 70-74 gets you into the 90% N1 range which will be more than enough for most weights. For the 787-10 I found that Flap 15 reduces the chance for tail strike and also Flap 5 significantly has a longer roll sometimes due to a slower rotation for the length of the -10’s fuselage. Flap 15 will offer easier rotation on the -10 and less runway needed, but more drag. Hope that helps!
