[PDF] Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 Vspeeds

Hope this helps to make takeoffs easier and more realistic. I suggest downloading it avoid losing it if the link becomes useless.

Only one question: with the flaps 10 and 15 landing cards, how can some of the Vapp speeds be the same as the Vref speeds? Even without wind, I thought Vapp is always greater than Vref.

So no, you must have a minimum speed of Vref + 5 + gust factor, right?

I thought the 5 extra knots were used when using the autothrottle only.

That’s possible. You still need to add the gust factor, if any, and I’ve heard that you also need to add half of the headwind speed to Vref to calculate Vapp.

That would be, as you said, with winds, but without them, it ends up being the speeds on the PDF.

Yes that makes sense. Thanks.
