    Default Takeoff speeds on the 757

    Hey everybody,
    I'm not sure if this is the right part of the forum (if it isn't, I'd be happy if someone could point me to the correct one) but at least it seems like a good place to start.
    I do a lot of flightsimming (FS9) and in order to make my flying on the 757 more realistic, I would like to calculate the takeoff speeds. Does anybody know where I can get charts for takeoff and landing speed (V1/Vref/V2/VA/Vr) calculation for the 757? I'd really appreciate any help I can get in that matter.
    Thanks a lot,
    Peter

    Gooooooood Morning....... !

    I'm not sure either if this is the forum that really helps you.
    You as a NW McDonnell-Douglas enthusiast (or what is that in your avatar?) find yourself between one or two Boeing enthusiasts.
    And then your question, it does not really concern your avatar, right?

    I don't know if we have a downright 757 enthusiast in here.
    But I like to second your wish, also 757 pilots need a precision manuals development...

    LH also has a intercontinental history, the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955.
    A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.
    The operator on the DUS - NYC route, on the DUS - BKK route, and on the shiny new DUS - LAS nonstop route? EW, one of the dearest LH daughters .

    Aviation enthusiast since more than 30 years. A whole decade here on this platform.

    Peter, I sent you a private message with my contact info. I've got what you're looking for but the file is too big to upload on the forum here. Shoot me an e-mail and I'd be happy to pass the speeds along to you.

    If you are asking this, I guess you've already looked in the "reference" section of the "kneeboard". That is, the "checkmark" icon where you have all those icons for the different sections of the panel (engines, map, GPS, radios, ATC.... and kneeboard)
