Take off procedure for A350

I have been flying the a350 and taking flight plans from FlightAware and im trying to do a flight from VHHH-KSFO with an a350 and first time I crashed because i was stalling and I crashed and I want to try again, is there anyone who could help me?

I tried to look up a YouTube video but there arent any good ones of how to takeoff with an a350

Thank You!

I take off the same way I do in most airliners. 80%+ N1, 10 degrees pitch while letting the FPV (Flight path vector) slowly reach 2500fpm and wait for the airspeed to get to 240, then set the A/P. Note that the climb is carefully monitored from start to level-off. How’s this for you? 😉


Also, this should help you as well.

What degrees do you set the flaps?

I rotate at 135-150 or so knots with flaps 1+F (the A350 is a lift beast). I use my pitch to increase my airspeed while climbing. Gradually, as airspeed increases, I increase V/S until I reach 2500 or something. That’s basically what I do. Make sure to pay attention to weight, flaps, retracting your gear, etc.

1+F is often used, but if you’re really heavy, you can use flaps 2.

Ok Thank You!

Here is my rotation procedure for the A350:

Flaps at 1+F
N1 around 85%
V1 around 140 knots
V2 around 150 knots
5-6% trim setting
5 - 7.5 degree rotational pitch

It’s seems that your V1-V2 speeds are a little to low. I have tried once or twice taking off from a 135knts and what happens is the angle of attack (especially at +2500 ft/min) is too high for sufficient air speed gains. The airspeed may remain stagnant or be increasing very slowly. Factoring in winds and other flight parameters and these are ideal conditions for a stall. Especially with the long haul route you have chosen and the aircraft being heavy on the account of that, I suggest rotating at higher V1/2 speeds. Hope this helps! 😄
