    The 777 is like a big 767, and we use a mixture of Flaps 5 and Flaps 15. Probably Flaps 5 for about 70% of takeoffs and 15 if we are heavy, choose a wet runway/tailwind for takeoff performance or go from a short runway. Very occassionally we do a flaps20 takeoff if more than 2 or 3 of those combinations mentionned above.

    For the 777 Flaps 1 is slats only.

    I think flaps 1 is just slats. AJ can confirm if that's true.

    I don't think there is a standard flap setting for takeoff on airliners. I've seen a lot of F-100s takeoff with flaps 0.

    Our usual setting is flaps 5, but there are times when we'll have to use flaps 15.

    99% of our takeoffs are at Flap 5.

    We use flap 15 occasionally on Runway 34R/16L at Narita departing to Cairns, and during reported windshear on any runway that is not obstacle limited.

    767-300s are not certified for Flap 1 takeoffs due to the geometry limit, however -200s can be certified for Flap 1.

    Cheers.

    Flap-setting *15 is the normal setting for take-off. For performance reasons flap 5 is sometimes used to achieve a higher take-off weight.

    On rare occasions flap-setting *20 will be used for take-off from short runways.

    Only flap settings in the Performance manual may be used.
    Yeah I kinda figured, plus im not like Come on AJ, im loke come onnnnnnnnn AJ!

    AJ, on the 767 do you usually use 15 or 5 degrees of flaps? It all considers on weight, runway distance, wind, etc... right?

    Would you say on average that 10 is kinda a "Standard" setting among most airliners? Even though each one has different requirements, but 10 is the average setting correct?
Working...
