I can’t find accurate speed and flap settings for IF aircraft. Is flap and speed settings available on the forums?
Are two planes I’m flying
Thanks in advance
Hi! I often use this thread to reference takeoff and landing speeds, flaps, and trim settings:
I use this thread to reference cruising altitudes, speeds, and fuel burns:
Guess I should of been more specific, when powering back. Each setting and what speed till final. I did read what you recommended before I reached out. I get the takeoff/ landing settings not when powering back.
What do you mean by “powering back”?
It means when you do Reverse thrust to push back, but that is illegal in Infinite Flight so IDK
If you mean pushback you dont use flaps until you are done with your pushback
I’m not sure what exactly you are referring to but your best bet is to look up the aircraft in question where you’ll be able to find key aspects of how they are operated.
Decreasing speed and lowering flaps according.
When I decrease speed for final and start lower flaps. Flying the 717 I been setting flaps @
135-140kts 30° (Landing)
I’m looking for a similar chart for all the IF Planes.
I’m going off google for flap ° at the appropriate speed.
I don’t know of any threads that are as detailed as that. Also, it’s not so exact in real life. Your weight plays a large role in those calculations. I would just lower your flaps as you need. The slower you go, the more lift you need to stay flying (to put it simply). So lower your speed and if you start losing too much altitude, lower your flaps and increase the throttle a bit.
Not during pushback. Talking about when you’re decreasing speed for final.
What speed should the aircraft be at during lowering the flaps.
For the 717-200, I’d guess that you would want to be at about 200 IAS on downwind, 180 on base, and check the thread I linked above for the final approach speed. Lower your flaps on final so 1° on long final and keep increasing as you decrease your speed. You’ll get the hang of it and be able to feel it instead of go off average calculations.
And remember, if it doesn’t look right comin down, you can always go around. ;)
Flap speeds are different for each aircraft. Just google flap speed for xx
I understand it’s different with weight, altitude and many other factors. I know there’s a (recommendation speed) as you can see from old post I’m not the only one asking … lol.
As you can see in the pic, there speed with flap °
Here are the official 757/767 manuals from Boeing. They may help:
Right, but I believe those are limits, not when to put them down.
Guess the term is called Flap Limits from what the picture shows.
Sorry for the ignorant question. I’m just trying be realistic as possible and keeping the aircraft level and stable once I start lowering flaps.
Totally! Make sure to check the official manuals. The limits are still probably good guiding speeds.
I’ve never heard that term used for a (pushback) first time.
In the tread it was said (powerback) was illegal in IF. I’ve never had reverse thrusts work on the tarmac, taxi etc. Only deployed on landing.
Apologies, only have a document for the 737. These speeds work like a charm! Source: http://www.b737.org.uk/flapspeedschedule.htm
In regards to the A320, your sequence would be along these lines:
F1 @ Green dot speed
F2 @ S speed
F3+F4 @VAPP decel, normally initiated once reaching a the FAF
These speeds can be calculated using the website infinitefmc.com
