How Do You Perform An Aborted Takeoff?

I thought V1 meant the speed in which a takeoff can not be aborted, and pilot/captain must commit to the takeoff and deal with the problem in the air. eg. Engine Fire?

Yes, but it’s calculated without reverser (it assumes a dual engine failure). If you’re going to definitely die if you take off (e.g another plane just ahead) it’s possible to abort it and survive

Ok, I understand you now. Thanks for clarifying. Have a great day!

There is no need for full flaps unless you want an incredibly fast rate of climb 😂

Thanks for your input, I agree. As mentioned above full flaps would minimize the amount of friction on the wheels so breaking wouldn’t be as effective.
