Welcome to the Unofficial Takeoff and Landing Profiles guide! This brief guide should get you into the air as well as on your way to a successful landing in just a few minutes. The table below should be pretty self explanatory for the most part. Please read through the notes section at the end of this tutorial for further clarification on some of the items found within the table.
The purpose of this guide is to provide you with ball park speeds, flap settings, and power settings to get you in the air and onto the runway in one piece. These values are not 100% accurate as each flight is unique to what performance will be required.
|Load %||Takeoff Power Setting||Takeoff Flaps||Rotate||Airborne by||Landing Flaps||Final Approach||Flare|
|25%||75% = 87% N1||Flaps 5||130kts||150kts||Flaps 30||130kts||125kts|
|50%||78% = 89% N1||Flaps 5 / 15||140kts||165kts||Flaps 30||140kts||135kts|
|75%||81% = 92% N1||Flaps 5 / 15**||150kts||170kts||Flaps 30||155kts||150kts|
|>75%***||84% = 95% N1||Flaps 15 / 20**||150kts+||170kts+||Flaps 30||160kts-165kts||155kts+|
**Note: Depending on the length of runway, weight, terrain and other considerations, a higher flap setting may be desired
***Note: Takeoff over 75% may result in takeoff over Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW). This could lead you to be landing overweight depending on your configuration
For reference the flap and various limitations for each setting are listed below. These can also be found in the cockpit of the 777 near the gear lever.
- For 25-50% loads, Flaps 5 was used for data
- For 75-100% load, Flaps 15 was used for data
- APPR is disabled for landings greater than 47% which is where the Maximum Landing Weight (MLW) lies
- "Airborne By" indicates a speed that you should be off the ground no later than. By the time you reach this speed, you should be in the climb and gear in the retraction process.
- Takeoff Power Setting- The first percentage is your throttle amount. The second value is the N1 read out as indicated in green above your throttle.
- 100% throttle should never be used. Aircraft in the real world very rarely exceed 100% as this is mainly used for emergencies only.
Please keep an eye out for the Official 777-200ER Tutorial that Infinite Flight will release on their YouTube Channel sometime in the near future. The channel can be found here.
Additionally, please also reference The New B772 Cockpit: Explained topic for any other inquiries you may have in regards to the symbols or markings you may find in the cockpit.
Feel free to add any questions or other helpful tips/pointers that you may find beneficial to others and myself or our helpful community members will gladly address those.
Please also check out the Unofficial A350 (T/O & LDG) Profiles if you would like to see a similar table for the A350. I’ll plan on making this “Unofficial” series a regular thing as aircraft are reworked or new from the factory.
Have fun! ✈️
