View Full Version : 727 Thrust...Issues?
12-22-2004, 03:35 PM
I purchased a CH Throttle Quadrant & have it setup using CH Manager.
Using a gross wt of 137K lb airplane & full thrust on center engine (EPR 2+ on the gauge) with engines 1 & 3 at idle, I can only attain 50 knots max even tho I've rolled the entire length of the runway. - Is this accurate ?

Without stating the length of the runway, or whether you had flaps down, I would say it is quite accurate.
I mean, you're at 1/3 power, you are certainly not going to get anywhere near takeoff speed. ;-)

It is "highly unlikely" :-) that you will be able to take off, with only engine # 2 running....
Have you tried to take off with all three engines at their appropriate take-off EPR setting? ;-)
