Unofficial Takeoff and Landing Profiles [777 Family]

Welcome to the Unofficial Takeoff and Landing Profiles guide for the 777 family! 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 tables 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.

Purpose:

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.


777-200ER & 777-300ER

>75%*** 84% = 95% N1 Flaps 15** 160kts+ 175kts+ Flaps 30 165kts-170kts 160kts+

**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 may also result in runway overruns. This could lead to overweight landings depending on your configuration. Consider all factors and risks.

‡ Note: APPR is disabled for landings greater than the loads below for where the Maximum Landing Weight (MLW) lies:

  • 34% (777LR)
  • 45% (777-300ER)
  • 47% (772ER)
  • 58% (777F)

Flaps

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.

Flaps Speed Limitation
1 255 kts
5 235 kts
15 215kts
20 195 kts
25 185 kts
30 170 kts

General Notes

  • For 25-50% loads, Flaps 5 was used for data
  • For 75-100% load, Flaps 15 was used for data
  • "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 - 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.
  • 20% trim was used to conduct these tests

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. The cockpit for all 777’s in Infinite Flight are the same in terms of design.

Note: Fuel flow, thrust and other aircraft performance factors may apply.


Questions?

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! ✈️

Awesome tutorial as usual, Matt. 😊

This is amazing! Thanks Matt!

What trim do you recommend for TO & LDG?

Ps. Jk just saw your trim message

I’ve found that 20% will work great for takeoffs. The heavier you are, the more trim you may need. In cruise and when heavy, I’ve found myself at in the 30-40% range.

Need to demote you from trainer. 😜

Ah no! I’ll do anything

Thank you! Very much!

I have found that 40% works great from start to finish whether light or heavy

Thanks for the input Scott! Yeah, I think it depends on how one calibrates their device and what trim feels comfortable. Trim is a flexible function that folks will have to play with.

No problem and certainly is something that is specific to the user !!
Love the guide and is similar to what i have found during testing…

Thanks for your wisdom and community input Matt <3

@DeerCrusher Is N1 here the value required to maintain 15 degree pitch at V2+15? Just checking.

Good question. 15 may be too much. You’re better off at putting pitch closer to 12 or 13 degrees. (Between the second and third pitch line)

Ah I didn’t check online first, it’s 14 degrees pitch for the 777

Since the update, I’ve found landing the 77W and 772 really difficult. It seems very sensitive when hand-flying, and I struggle to get it to maintain a steady rate of descent. I find myself too slow because it’s hard to lose height.

What trims would be good for landing with a 20-30% load?

Trim will vary based on aircraft load, flap setting and the position of your device when you calibrated. I personally have found that it likes 20% for takeoff and landing. Some folks prefer a little more and some a little less.

The trick is finding “How much trim is needed to be neutral?” In otherwords, find the spot that requires the same amount of force to push the nose over just as you would pull back.

Absolutely beautiful! Job well done @DeerCrusher!
