Hey sorry I ask a lot of questions on here. But I was just wondering when you guys usually put up your flaps on departure (Takeoff) Thanks!
Hi there! You can go the simple way and bring up your flaps in increments as you gain speed or you can search for your specific aircraft’s flap limits. For example, here are the Boeing 737’s flap limits.
Remember that flaps provide lift and speed (airflow) provides lift. The faster you go, the less flaps you’ll need. It’s not really about altitude or time. Speed is the main factor when dealing with flaps.
When passing 190kias :D
Flap 5 departure: 220 knots
Flap 10 departure: 210 knots
Yup exactly the same as me
When I takeoff, once I hear positive rate, I just go ahead and fully raise all my flaps. On descent, I do it incrementally based on speed and looking at what it says in the cockpit (on the reworked aircraft at least)
A330 A340 a350 a380
Flaps 1: 230kts
Flaps 1+f: 215kts
Flaps 2: 215kts-200kts
Flaps 3: 185kts-170kts
Flaps 4: 150kts-135kts
Ignore my replies I did not fully read ur posts on the departure
Let’s say it’s a A380 or Airbus and there’s 1, 2, 3, full then i put 2 or on the A380 and some heavies I put 1+F and it has been based on a video from The Famous Lufthansa Pilot
3,000 MSL or 190 KIAS (above 2,000) whichever occurs first.
